The good news: After years of teasing fans with the possibilty of retro-converted 3D versions of the "Star Wars" movies, George Lucas is finally making good on his promise and has even set a release date.
The bad news: He's only releasing one movie a year, and he's doing it in chronological order.
So on February 10, 2012, Lucas will kick off the 3D releases with "The Phantom Menace" - which means, yes, we have to wait until 2015, 2016, and 2017 for "A New Hope," "The Empire Strikes Back," and "Return of the Jedi."
