Even as speculation spreads that newly minted Star Wars: Episode VII director J.J. Abrams hasn’t committed to the previously announced 2015 release date for the movie, Disney and Lucasfilm are taking steps to “accelerate their plans,” as Darth Sidious might say.

Lucasfilm has decided to postpone this fall’s scheduled release of Star Wars Episodes II and III in 3D. 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.
