LucasFilm announced today that it will postpone the 3D re-releases of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, now that development is proceeding full speed on Episode VII. According to the announcement, “Given the recent development that we are moving forward with a new Star Wars trilogy, we will now focus 100 percent of our efforts on Star Wars: Episode VII in order to ensure the best possible experience for our fans. We will post further information about our 3D release plans at a later date.”
Disney obviously wants to push forward with new material quickly – this despite the fact that it has been re-release its own inventory of films in 3D on a fairly rapid schedule, with Monsters Inc. the most recent.
