(ANI): Inspired by Avatar, filmmaker George Lucas is planning to
make 3D versions of his Star Wars films. Lucas is keen to see the
space franchise evolve, and wants to use the same technology used
in James Cameron"s epic sci-fi film.
"I liked it (Avatar). I make movies like that, (so), I can
appreciate what (James Cameron) went through to do it," the Daily
Express quoted him as telling Access Hollywood. “(I'm) happy it's
so successful, and worked very well in 3D. (I) haven't been a big
fan of 3D, but that movie definitely improves in 3D.
"We've been looking for years and years and years of trying to
take Star Wars and put it in 3D. 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," Lucas added.
