"The live-action Star Wars saga will be converted to 3D. There are few movies that lend themselves more perfectly to 3D. The Star Wars Saga has always delivered an entertainment experience that is completely immersive," the Telegraph quoted a statement from Lucasfilm, the US director's film production company, on the Star Wars website, as saying.
"The cutting edge conversion will take that immersion to the next thrilling level." Visual effects supervisor John Knoll said: "For Star Wars we will take our time, applying everything we know both aesthetically and technically to bring audiences a fantastic new Star Wars experience."
