Report: 'Revenge of the Sith' 3D Conversion Complete, May Still See Release After 'The Force Awakens'

By: Dominic Jones

This weekend their was a rare screening of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones in San Rafael, California, followed by a Q&A with Denis Muren afterwards.  Muren, who had worked on the production of five Star Wars films and supervised the 3D conversion of the prequels, made a few revelations about the 3D conversions.  Our friend Jason Ward of was in attendance at the screening and tweeted out the reveals.  The biggest reveal was, that the conversion work on Revenge of the Sith had been completed before the 3D re-releases were postponed.  Muren also stated that he believed the 3D versions of the prequels would see a theatrical release, but not until after the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Sounds like Muren thinks there's still hope for the 3D re-releases.  I hate to disagree, but I'm skeptical they'll see anything more than special screenings at events like this and Celebrations (prove me wrong Disney!)  Also, it's interesting to know that the work on Episode III was completed.  Hopefully it gets some screenings as well.
