'Star Wars' 3D Re-Releases Put On Hold

Today Lucasfilm has issued a press release stating that they've put on hold the planned re-release of the Star Wars Episodes II and III in 3D.  (There is a god!)

They quote the recent developments with Disney purchasing the company and moving forward with a brand-new Star Wars trilogy as the reason they have put conversion plans on hold, wanting to stay totally focused on the newest, upcoming project, Star Wars: Episode VII, being directed by J.J. Abrams.  And the subsequent next two films.

Any future 3D conversion plans, as they occur, will be announced by the company they said.

Which is great that they're not spreading resources too thin, but I have to wonder how far along they were in the conversion process?

Eh...  we'll see how things go.  I'm sure some day, it will happen.  3D is all the rage and great for the movie distributor's bottom line.
