The George Lucas universe returns to theaters on Feb. 10 when “Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace” opens in 3-D and it looks like he will be using every Jedi trick to get fans into seats on opening weekend. Some of the special offers and giveaways we’re hearing about so far:

* At all RealD theaters, the Darth Maul glasses you see above will be handed out (while supplies last) to fans who buy tickets on the movie’s opening day. And now, you don’t have to break them in half at the end of the movie. 

* At all AMC Theaters, fans will get the all-new Hasbro “Star Wars” Fighter Pod with the purchase of each RealD 3-D ticket for “Episode I,” all weekend long, Feb. 10-12.  The limit is one per ticket and the offer is good only while supplies last.

* At 10 select AMC theaters in the U.S., starting at 11 a.m. Feb. 11, there will be special events, interactive fun and giveaways. At those sites, fans can expect a Lego feature area, Darth Maul face painting, character appearances, special pod-racer 3-D glasses, a demonstration of the upcoming Xbox Kinnect “Star Wars” game and a Hasbro collectible toy giveaway. The sites: Atlanta: AMC Southlake 24; Boston: AMC Loews Liberty Tree Mall 20; Chicago: AMC South Barrington 30; Denver: AMC Highlands Ranch 24; Los Angeles: AMC Tustin 14 at The District; AMC Ontario Mills 30; New York: AMC Empire 25; New Jersey: AMC Garden State 16; Phoenix: AMC Mesa Grand 24; San Francisco: AMC Emeryville Bay Street 16.

    I am a 42 year old mom mother of 3, 2 boys and a girl. We are a Star Wars family. My hubby worked at Hasbro when they were located in Cincinnati. My husband worked on some of the toy line and we are die-hard Hasbro/Star Wars/Transformer-Beast Wars fans. Can't wait to see the movie

  3. Andrea Dudley says:

    Oh not fair!!!! I just bought my tickets at a Wehrenberg theater not knowing about this!!! But the AMC theaters here don’t compare! But I really want those glasses for my son and I! :(

  7. Joe says:

    THIS IS THE NEW WAY TO MAKE MONEY WITHOUT "REALLY" HAVING TO SPEND MUCH OR DO MUCH WORK!!! – "I know… let's take the movie we made years ago and 3-D it, then release it at the theaters and make money, then.. re-release it on BluRay(and DVD again)… then once we've bilked all the money from people for "EACH" episode… we'll sell it as a Boxed Set and include an even MORE VERY LIMITED pair of 3-D glasses for their homes and a Lego figure only included with the boxed set"!!!

    NO AMC in Richmond, VA

    will see form the eyes of the maul

  10. There are only like 5 scenes in all of the prequels that would benefit from 3-D technology. While I am a huge Star Wars fan, I think Lucas has finally gone too far. Dare I call this 3D stunt the Turnerization of the Star Wars films?

  11. Aaron says:

    Man! I almost like these more than the pod-racing glasses! I was planning on buying a pair of the pod-racing ones online, but I think if I had these I'd feel good enough! haha.

  12. Mandy says:

    I got some! They're so cool!

  13. Stereoscopy (also called stereoscopics or 3-D imaging) refers to a technique for creating or enhancing the illusion of depth in an image by presenting two offset images separately to the left and right eye of the viewer. These two-dimensional images are then combined in the brain to give the perception of 3-D depth.
