The British actor Anthony Daniels, who played C-3PO, commented at Panasonic's exclusive bundling of the Star Wars Blu-ray boxset with selected products that he's "quite happy, in a luddite kind of way, to see things on a [2D] screen."


Going on, he said that he has "a problem with sitting in my own sitting room and being surprised by things coming into the room. I don't expect things to come out my television!" Star Wars' stunt co-ordinator Nick Gillard is surprisingly not keen on 3D either, saying "I hate 3D!" and that even in 2D, he wasn't that impressed by James Cameron's Avatar: "I saw Avatar on non-3D and I thought it was pretty average."

Panasonic's bundling the boxset with the BDT110, 210, 310 and PWT500 Blu-ray players, the BWT700 and BWT800 recorders and BTT270, BTT262, BTT370, BTT362, BTT775 and BFT800 Blu-ray home theater systems from the 12th of August to the 31st of December, in the UK. I'm awaiting details on whether this deal will spread to other countries as well, so stay tuned. [TechRadar]
