2013 Release Dates Confirmed for 3D Conversions of Star Wars Episodes II and II

Lucasfilm confirmed this week that the next two 3D releases of the prequels will be as follows:

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones 3D     September 20th, 2013
Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith 3D   October 4th, 2013

You may notice that the release date for the latter movie has been moved up a week since the original release date announcement in September. Even though the dates haven't changed substantially, it's good to get this confirmation from the company since it was sold to Disney by George Lucas in October.

"This trilogy really builds as it continues," says ILM's Dennis Muren, "and Episodes II and III feature shots of increased complexity and detail that really lend themselves to a deeper, more powerful 3D experience. Also, the action definitely ramps up as the galaxy plunges into war, so there are more opportunities to place the audience in the thick of some truly spectacular sequences."

The first prequel movie to get the 3D treatment, Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace 3D, was released in theaters in February 2012.
