Remember a few years back when we were told that Star Wars would be coming back to theaters in 3D? Well, the idea sort of fell through, but now it's back again.

All thanks to Avatar.

Star Wars 3D Gains Momentum

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.”
