20th Century Fox shifts 'Revenge of the Sith' 3D release, cancels 'Independence Day 3D'

By Matthew Dougherty,

The 3D rerelease market is changing over at 20th Century Fox with the third Star Wars prequel, Revenge of the Sith moving to another date and Independence Day being cancelled.

According to ComingSoon.net, Revenge of the Sith will move from three weeks apart from its predecessor, Attack of the Clones, to two weeks. Originally, it was supposed to come out October 11, 2013, as opposed to the September 20 release date of the second prequel. But now it will hit theaters October 4, 2013.

Since Disney bought out Lucasfilm, fans have been wondering what will come of the planned 3D re-releases of all six Star Wars films.

Starting with the 1999 prequel, The Phantom Menace, back in February 2012, the next five films were to follow the next five years.

Over the summer we learned that Attack of the Clones had been delayed to September but that Revenge of the Sith would follow three weeks later in October. There is no word yet on whether the original trilogy will get their own 3D conversions as scheduled.

Meanwhile, Fox has also cancelled the 3D conversion of Independence Day that was set for release, you guessed it, Independence Day 2013.

IGN says that the studio has yet to give any reasoning for the decision.
