With the advent of 3D movies coming back (and not the cheesy 3D movies of old, but with better special effects and made by people who know how to make movies–like James Cameron) it had been rumored that George Lucas was going to make his Star Wars six part Saga into 3D. Comingsoon.net has the scoop:

ComingSoon.net caught up with DreamWorks Animations CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg on Tuesday and learned that George Lucas is looking to repurpose the six “Star Wars” episodes into 3D format.
Katzenberg told us that Lucas is very excited about it and that he’s got the technical resources to pull it off. “He isn’t going to put a product out, I think, that isn’t anything other than first rate,” Katzenberg said.
Stay tuned for possibly more on this soon.
