There had been talk about 3D versions of George Lucas's legendary trilogy for some time now, but it seems that James Cameron's latest film could help make that a reality. Access Hollywood recently spoke with George Lucas and he revealed the technological breakthroughs in Avatar could lead to 3D versions of his Star Wars films.

"We've been looking for years and years and years of trying to take Star Wars and put it in 3D," George explained to Access. "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."
