14 December, 2015:Â Director JJ Abrams’ “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will be the first film in the hit franchise series to be released in 3D during its initial run, alongside 2D and Imax versions.
“Force Awakens” is comming on the screens on December 18 in a digital 3D, three different Imax 3D versions and regular digital 2D.
In 2012, “Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace” was first released in 2D in 1999, then was converted to 3D and re-released, but later then DisneyÂ planed to re-release 3D versions of the other two films in the series as well.
In late 2013, Disney Â and Lucasfilm announced that Force Awakens would be available in 3D, and the movies’ format choices are now listed on marketing materials.
Films that were shot with 3D cameras, such as James Cameron’s “Avatar” (2009), Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo” and Ridley Scott’s “The Martian”, have promoted the 3D aspect much more than those shot with 2D cameras and then converted to 3D.
The new “Star Wars” movie was converted. Three different formats of “Force Awakens” will play in Imax theatres.
