Star Wars Episodes 2 and 3 in 3D killed by Lucasfilm

Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith 3D releases pulled in favour of Episode 7

The original plan to rush out the remaining two prequels in 3D before the end of the year – Star Wars: Episode 2 – Attack Of The Clones and Star Wars: Episode 3 – Revenge Of The Sith – was quickly superseded by the whole Disney/Lucasfilm buyout and the announcement of Star Wars: Episode 7.

Which makes it surprising it’s taken this long for them to cancel the forthcoming 3D movies, even though they must be a fair way into the 3D conversion process, so that cost coupled with whatever remunerations they have to make to original distributor 20th Century Fox speaks volumes about the value Disney is putting on the Star Wars brand.

Attack Of The Clones was originally due for release 11 October 2013, and Revenge Of The Sith on 25 October 2013.
