Variety reports that the 3-D version of the Star wars Saga might not be happening as soon as George Lucas stated at ShoWest:
At last month's ShoWest, George LucasGeorge Lucas said he's eager to release all six films in the "Star Wars" saga in digital 3-D, one film a year, starting in 2007. But even though Lucas has control of the pics and can release them when he chooses, Lucasfilm says a 3-D "Star Wars" series will have to wait.
"No, we don't have any real plans," "Star Wars" producer Rick McCallum says. "George had never seen the footage of the first six minutes of 'Episode IV' until a week before ShoWest."
Lucas "yearns for it to happen, he wants it to happen," McCallum says, "but we can't implement it until the industry gets its act together and pushes digital cinema forward."
