It's noteworthy, but seeing how Episode I in 3D was something of a non-event (I know I skipped it), I'm not terribly surprised.  It would have been nice to have all of the movies in the theater during the leadup to Episode VII.  But that's another story...

Episodes II & III 3D postponed...

From the OFFICIAL SITE:

Focusing on Star Wars: Episode VII, Lucasfilm Postpones Episodes II and III 3D
January 28, 2013

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.



I'm surprised by this, I really thought they would finish out the prequels and give us the OT in 3D next year in the ramp up to Episode VII.

But I guess if they are shooting for a 2015 release, they don't want to spread their resources too thin.

I guess it now makes sense they moved up ROTS to this year, they've known about an Episode 7 in 2015 since at least last summer, which should mean that we'll see the OT in 3D next year.

Still surreal to me that all of this is happening.

It's interesting that they've decided to stack both AOTC and ROTS.  But I think that there's a sense that AOTC might be one of the weaker draws of the saga, and pairing it with the strong ROTS in a coordinated release might benefit both 3D releases.

As for the different time of year?  February is positively DEAD at the movies.  I still have to wonder why they released TPM in 3D this past February.  Obviously they wanted to avoid the competition of the summer movie season, but this just seemed to be a bad choice.

I can't site the source, but I'm near certain that I read that it was all 6 films for 3-D conversion. But that could have been something I read on an on-line post - I can't remember.

I sure hope the 3D for EP 2 is better than the first because it was a let down for me.

I went to the 3D panel at CVI, John Knoll and Dennis Muren were the speakers, Knoll supervised TPM's transfer, while Muren is busy with AOTC as we speak, mentioning it takes about a year to complete, with that the AOTC footage shown was way better than what I remember TPM looking like, though it could have the theater quality

I think it's a good idea to compress the schedule, TPM in 3D probably didn't do as well as they liked so no point in dragging their feet in releasing the other 2 prequels and moving on to the OT.

I'm waiting for the original trilogy...really looking forward to it!!!

The problem with converting an old movie into 3D is you won't see much 3D at all.  I don't think they will do for the OTC.  Look at EP1, they admitted it was a challenge to convert it because it's old.  EP2 and 3 will be much better because they have better reference sources.

Lucasfilm announced today that Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith will be released theatrically in 3D back-to-back on September 20, 2013 and October 11, 2013, respectively.
 
"Attack of the Clones" will be going up against Ron Howard's Rush with Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl, while Paul Greengrass's Captain Phillips starring Tom Hanks is scheduled on the same date as "Revenge of the Sith."
 
"Attack of the Clones" will also be battling for 3D screens against The Little Mermaid 3D, opening a week earlier, and "Revenge of the Sith" will be in a similar situation with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For presumably opening in 3D theaters a week before.
 
Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace was released in 3D on February 10. Re-released by Fox, the 3D version earned $43.5 million domestically and $59.3 million internationally for a worldwide total of $102.7 million.

I thought I read that they were releasing all in the same year, but I may not have understood it correctly.

Yeah, it really isn't clear in the announcement, I'd guess that if the prequels don't do well enough they may release them closer together.

Bottom line, I'm psyched that the saga will be back in theaters, mainly so I can take my kids to see it in theater, by the time the get around to OT (2015  ::)) my son will be the perfect age to enjoy it....

I was totally thinking the same thing. My son will be 2 soon but by 2015 he'll be prime time age to watch the OT. I can't wait! It will be awesome to see the wonder in their faces like when we first saw them in the theaters.

yeah and avatar sucked without the 3d by the way. I watched it on my HD blue ray and thought it was lame.  The 3d effect really made the movie in theatres.
