I received my latest issue of the Star Wars Insider today and was surprised to read that Revenge of the Sith will be making its theatrical 3D premiere during Celebration Anaheim in April. Attendees will be able to view the entire Prequel Trilogy in 3D (along with the Original Trilogy in non-3D) over the course of the four day event.

(Oh, and I fixed that image on their site while I was at it.)

Again, this is an unconfirmed rumor at this point so stay tuned for further developments…
Update: StarWars.com confirms that further 3D releases are postponed.
