You know those light sabres that are like double light sabres? That's probably the only cool thing we remember from the otherwise pretty bad "Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace," George Lucas' long-awaited space political drama prequel to his "Star Wars" trilogy. It made approximately five bajillion Saturn dollars, or whatever monetary system Scrooge McLucas uses to count his riches, and now it's coming back. IN 3D. So if you thought Jar Jar Binks was offensively annoying the first time around, you ain't seen nothing yet.

That's right, the Lucas money train is gonna keep right on rolling, and all the supposed ex-fans who have cried time and again that this is the last dollar they'll ever give the man who has ruined the franchise forever will still line up opening day to fork over their money. These are the same people who threatened a boycott over the BluRay edits of the original movies, and then went on to make it the fastest selling title in the format ever. Good work everyone, that's showing him! Anyway, the trailer for "Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace 3D" has arrived, and if "Excitement!" means a bunch of guys in funny clothing talking about taxation and trade routes....zzzzz....you might have more fun watching the next GOP debate.

"Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace 3D" hits theaters on February 10, 2012. Check out the trailer and poster below. [embed via Cinemagia]

    jesus u fanboys and your sensitivity towards a fictional movie, its just a movie!

    Is this really the official poster? I'm shocked at how static it is: Yoda on the verge of unconsciousness, R2D2 doing nothing in all his rounded bluntness, Obi-Wan holding his light saber reeeeeal still like like he's posing for one of those old-tymey photos. The only things coming towards us are the podracers, and somehow even they look lethargic. THis poster's ostensibly designed to get us excited about seeing the film in 3D, but it totally fails, and was obviously thrown together in a few hours without much thought. Like the script.

    And you are whom? Your opinion counts why? Got a little penix envy going on?

    Chris, you're in the minority!

    Who's disappointed? I can't wait to see this on the big screen once more. I love the prequels and originals, so I don't see why everyone is so butt hurt about it

    Oh, dorky Chris, you are so lame

  • Drew | February 14, 2012 1:46 PM

    Yeah, Chris. Don't go around telling people that. No one's with you on that one. Nothing in this movie makes any sense at all.

    I think you meant "poster" not "trailer"! Nice addition!
