Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace 3D Blu-ray will debut through Panasonic
When LucasFilm released Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray back in September, Panasonic teamed up with the studio to package this set with its Blu-ray players. It seems Panasonic and LucasFilm are continuing their partnership, with Panasonic packaging Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace 3D Blu-ray along with its 3D Blu-ray players.

While an insider claims the 3D Blu-ray will be available with Panasonic products as early as this spring, it seems a September release is more likely, since Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace just opened in theaters two weeks ago. Nothing has been confirmed by Panasonic or LucasFilm as of yet.

Fox Home Entertainment, which released Star Wars: The Complete Saga last year, has not released an official street date for the Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace 3D Blu-ray. We'll be sure to keep you posted with any new information as soon as we have more details.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace was released May 19th, 1999 and stars Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Jake Lloyd, Ian McDiarmid, Pernilla August, Oliver Ford Davies, Hugh Quarshie. The film is directed by George Lucas.

    I don't think fans will have to worry because these look like they'll never be released to a wide audience anyway. They'll probably keep them exclusive to whomever buys a BD player.

    Panasonic did the same with the Avatar 3D Blu-ray almost 2 years ago and still no sign of a 3D version of Avatar in any store.

    Well of course it's going to be released on 3D blu-ray, and so will episodes II, III, IV, V, and VI when they are shown in 3D at the movies; then you'll get ANOTHER Saga box set collection, but this time it's in 3D! It never stops.....
