Well, Star Wars really is under new ownership. Rather than milking every last penny from the series, Deadline has revealed that Disney and Lucasfilm have made the decision to delay the planned 3D re-releases for Episodes II through VI in order to focus on "rebooting the franchise" with Star Wars: Episode VII, which is of course now under the stewardship of Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams.

"Lucasfilm has decided to postpone this fall's scheduled release of Star Wars Episodes II and III in 3D," reads the official statement on StarWars.com. "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."
