It seems we might be going back to a galaxy far, far away in stereoscopic 3D, if a new rumor is to be believed. MarketSaw is reporting that a new Star Wars trilogy is being prepped for a 3D release.

It was also reported by the site that they're sources indicate the new trilogy will not be directed by George Lucas, although he will still produce, and that heavyweight directors Steven Speilberg and Frances Ford Coppola could be in consideration to direct these new films.

The site is also saying that these films moving forward is heavily dependent on the success (or failure) of James Cameron's 3D epic Avatar, which is set for a December 18 release. It was also reported that work is under way on converting the original trilogy - Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi - to stereoscopic 3D as well.

Of course, none of this has been confirmed by anybody as of yet, so we'll be sure to keep you posted on any and all breaking developments surrounding a new trilogy.

UPDATE: (10/22/09 11:20 AM PST)Ain't It Cool News reached out to the LucasFilm PR department on the rumor, who replied:

We do not have any Star Wars theatrical movies planned.

The site also did note, however, that the company had denied rumors that turned out to be true in the past, but that probably isn't the case here. We'll be sure to keep you posted if more developments arise from this story.
