The 'Star Wars' We'll Never See

Scott Meslow:

But when it actually arrived, "Episode I… in 3D!" turned out to be a pretty tough sell. The movie grossed a disappointing $43 million—less than half of what a 3D rerelease of The Lion King had earned just a few months later. To fans who already knew they hated the prequels—and had seen them poison the well of the movie they did like—the idea of seeing Jar Jar Binks in 3D was like being invited to bend down and get a better whiff of an old turd by sticking your nose right up to it.

A pretty perfect way to put it. 💩
