After seeing how well Avatar did at the box office thanks in part to the 3D medium, George Lucas tells AccessHollywood that he is now re-contemplating doing the Star Wars franchise in the next dimension.
“I liked it. I make movies like that, [so], I can appreciate what [James Cameron] went through to do it,” George Lucas told Access Hollywood at the HBO Golden Globes party on Sunday.
”[I’m] happy it’s so successful, and worked very well in 3-D,” he continued. “Haven’t been a big fan of 3-D, but that movie definitely improves in (the field of) 3-D.”

“We’ve been looking for years and years and years of trying to take Star Wars and put it in 3-D,” George explained to Access. “But, [the] technology hasn’t been there. We’ve been struggling with it, but I think this will be a new impetus to make that happen.”
