Plans to update Episodes II and III of the Star Wars movie franchise with a 3D treatment have been shelved in favour of work on the new movie, Lucasfilm has revealed.
Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith were both due to be revamped for a cinema re-release - but the company has announced it is putting the plans on hold now that JJ Abrams has been appointed director for Episode VII.
In an official statement, it said: "Given the recent development that we are moving forward with a new Star Wars trilogy, we will now focus 100 percent of our efforts on Star Wars: Episode VII in order to ensure the best possible experience for our fans.
"We will post further information about our 3D release plans at a later date."
The Phantom Menace was re-released in 3D last year, taking $43m at the US box office.
