Before Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm back in October 2012, George Lucas’ company was planning to re-release the prequel trilogy in theaters with a brand new 3D up-conversion. The Phantom Menace had already seen its way back into theaters and took an additional $102.7 million to Episode I‘s now impressive $1 billion worldwide box office. With the promise of Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith seeing their own 3D up-conversion re-releases just around the corner, Disney instead canceled the prequel re-releases to focus on the new Star Wars: Episode VII. It seems that Disney is now reconsidering a 3D re-release for Episodes II and III.
According to Jedi News, new theater showings in the Netherlands suggest that Disney might actually re-release Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith in 3D next year. According to the source, the prequel films would open on December 31, 2014 in the Netherlands.
It was something I haven’t come across anywhere else, so the first thing I did, was call to confirm it. And they did. On the website they have Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith listed for December 31st, 2014, both movies in 3D!
