Page 3 - 3d Treatment For Star Wars Ii & Iii Shelved
Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm last year and the subsequent announcement that it will release a new series of Star Wars movies, have had an unexpected consequence -- the indefinite postponement of 3D versions of Episodes II (Attack of the Clones) and III (Revenge of the Sith). In a statement, Lucasfilm said on Monday, Given the recent development that we are moving forward with a new Star Wars trilogy, we will now focus 100% of our efforts on Star Wars: Episode VII. The episode, which Disney said on Friday will be directed by J.J. Abrams, has been set for release in 2015. The 3D re-release of Episode I (Phantom Menace) grossed $43.5 million during its run in 3D last year, a figure that was widely regarded as a disappointment.
