Star Wars to go 3D?
Speaking to Access Hollywood, Lucas said he "liked" Avatar, adding that he can appreciate what Cameron went through to make the movie.
"[I'm] happy it's so successful, and worked very well in 3D. Haven't been a big fan of 3D, but that movie definitely improves in [the field of] 3D," he noted.
He added that he has been looking "for years and years and years" at ways of trying to turn the Star War installments into 3D but had not been able to see a solution.
"Technology hasn't been there. We've been struggling with it, but I think this will be a new impetus to make that happen," he revealed.
The first installment of the franchise Star Wars was released in 1977 and was followed by Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back in 1980. Episode VI: Return of the Jedi was released in 1983.
Episode I: The Phantom Menace was released in 1999, followed by Episode II - Attack of the Clones in 2002 and Episode III Return of the Sith in 2005.
