In 2012, Star Wars The Phantom Menace was rereleased into theaters in 3D. Lucasfilm’s plan was to rerelease all of the Star Wars films at the time this way but it never happened. Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, the last two of the prequel trilogy, were planned to release in 2013 but were cancelled abruptly in 2012.

The cancellation was probably because of both a disinterest in 3D by that point and, much more likely, Disney buying Lucasfilm and Star Wars with it. We know for a fact that Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith 3D conversions were done and were actually shown publicly for a brief period of time in 2015 at Star Wars Celebration.

According to a ComingSoon article that detailed the cancellation of the rereleases, the original trilogy was planned but never had a firm release date. From what I’ve read so far there’s very little on the original trilogy, meaning it was likely never actually done.

I don’t know how or if it’ll be possible to find them and have these released to the public. Phantom Menace’s 3D conversion was seemingly never released on Bluray. And outside of that only Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith are confirmed to exist. But as a Star Wars and prequel fan I would love to have these found and released to the public somehow. If you have any tips on finding them please let me know.

I know very little on 3D Star Wars, but there is a section on the 3D films and also a completed fan project (but nobody has access to it?) in https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/An-Index-Help-Thread-for-Original-Trilogy-Discussion/id/57363 : in the “The Home Releases and Formats of the Original Trilogy”. Maybe there is something in there that may help you?

Also from the “Star Wars Saga Preservation” project index:

Neptune’s Star Wars Saga 3D Conversion Project. a 2013 thread; password protected files - passwords are unknown

but is seems people still cannot access this, and nobody has done a similar 3D project since?

PsyKovic, have you found 3D Star Wars projects by other fans?

“The other Sequels were the result of an over-anxious press. The original intention was to make three [films], and that was really the end of it. It was not until 10 years after the first [film] that I thought of doing a back story.” - George Lucas, speaking at the Premiere of ROTS in 2005
