    Why Star Wars Passed On The Chance To Make Early IMAX History

    For most of his career, Lucas worked ahead of the technological curve. When the technology couldn’t meet him at the bleeding edge, he paused the “Star Wars” saga for 16 years until computer-generated imagery caught up with his dizzyingly high expectations.

    Lucas begrudgingly shot “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace” on 35mm before switching to digital cameras for the last two Prequel Trilogy installments. But there’s an intriguing what-if as to his preferred exhibition format, one that stretches all the way back to 1975.

    Lucas was determined to give moviegoers a one-of-a-kind viewing experience, so he put out feelers to anyone who was developing new cinematic tech. According to J.W. Rinzler’s “The Making of Star Wars,” this led producer Gary Kurtz to fly to the Great White North and meet with a company that had worked up an ultra-immersive high-def film camera.
