Lucasfilm postpones 3D release of ‘Star Wars’ trilogy, ‘Clones’ and ‘Sith’ to focus on new films

The 3D re-release trend seems to have come and gone rather quickly as Disney had just announced that a re-release of “The Little Mermaid” has been cancelled, now “Star Wars” is on hold as well.

The trendy post-conversion of popular older films to 3-D started back with “The Lion King,” which had great success. The following projects were not so profitable.

Lucasfilm claims they would rather focus on the new “Star Wars” films, not surprising after landing JJ Abrams as the director for “Episode VII.”

“Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge of the Sith” were both slated to return to theaters on 2013.

From StarWars.com, Lucasfilm to focus all its efforts on the new Star Wars trilogy:

Lucasfilm has decided to postpone this fall’s scheduled release of Star Wars Episodes II and III in 3D. 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.
