Disney Cancels Star Wars 3D Prequels

Body

5299 Star Wars fans can kiss 3D good-bye - at least for the prequels - as Disney has apparently canceled them to focus on the upcoming new movies.

Deadline has it from a source at LucasFilm that no more 3D Star Wars prequels will be hitting the big screen.

Episode II: Attack Of The Clones was to be released in September of this year with Episode III later in October.

Following the lackluster box office results of Phantom Menance in 3D last year, which saw only $23 million brought in domestically, this looks to be a good decision on the part of Disney as they are setting their sights forward on the new movies.

The initial announcement from LucasFilm back in 2010 about Star Wars 3D also included Episodes IV, V and VI, which look to be done as well.

Update: StarWars.com says they are being postponed:

Lucasfilm has decided to postpone this fall's scheduled release of Star Wars Episodes II and III in 3D

Star Wars Episode VII has a 2015 release directed by J.J. Abrams with a script from Michael Arndt.
