Star Wars 3D on its way

Really, does every single film need to be 3D these days?  It would seem so, and some major filmmakers are having a look through their back catalogues to see what would be suitable for an upgrade into the third dimension.  George Lucas, for example, has just revealed that he is preparing to release all six Star Wars films in 3D, beginning with The Phantom Menace in 2012.

Am I the only one who was kind of hoping that the 3D craze would be long over by 2012?  3D is great for about two minutes, and then the nausea takes over, and it kind of gets old after that.  I hope that this doesn’t set off a huge trend of filmmakers neglecting new work in favor of re-releasing all their old stuff.  No one wants to see the 3D version of Gigli.  No one even wanted to see it the first time around.
