In the search for more money.
Did you see Phantom Menace’s re-release back in February? Well, apparently enough people did for Fox and Lucasfilm to give the green light to re release the other two films in the prequel trilogy in 3D. The Star Wars Facebook announced that Attack of the Clones will be released September 20th, 2013 and Revenge of the Sith October 11th, 2013 respectively. Why so close? Best get them done with and move on to the original trilogy.
So, will you be paying money to see the last of the prequel trilogy on the big screen again?
