While reading this article, I noticed the throw-away line at the end which states that the new Star Wars film due for release in 2015 will be in 3D.

Granted, I understand that most of the tent-pole films these days are released simultaneously in 2D and 3D, but I am wondering if there has been any official confirmation of Star Wars Ep VII being shot and presented in 3D.

Of course it will, how else could Disney get maximum money out of it? But wait, J. J. Abrams? Hmm, might not be as much rubbish as I thought. – Napoleon Wilson Jun 27 '13 at 20:33

No, it has not been officially confirmed, not has any such indication been given. I've gone through press releases, fan sites, wikipedia, official sites and such, and there is nothing other than production dates. But I suppose personally, they would certainly release it in 3D as most big budget films are these days.

+1 for doing the legwork. – Nobby Jun 28 '13 at 13:39

Since the movie will be shot on film and almost without CGI, the movie most likely won't be shot in 3D. But maybe it will be post-converted to 3D.

it's Star Wars and you say "almost without CGI"? What the hell is wrong with you? Every Star Wars film is based on science fiction featuring everything outer space. How can it not contain tons of CGI when everything is made up? – kicker86 Aug 23 '13 at 8:50
@kicker86 - there was practically no CGI in the first 3 Star Wars - effects shots - ships, battles etc were shot on moving camera's, shots were composited together. Even blue-screening techniques at the time were analog. – iandotkelly Aug 23 '13 at 15:13
you could explain this line from wikipedia - "Special effects were created using almost all formats, including model work, CGI and practical effects." – kicker86 Aug 23 '13 at 16:02
Yes, there will be lots of CGI, but there will also be lots of practical effects. Don't forget that The Phantom Menace (which everyone derides) actually uses more practical and model (along with CG) shots than the entire first trilogy put together. – Nobby Aug 24 '13 at 11:27
Also, Star Trek Into Darkness was shot on film and presented as 3D. – Nobby Aug 24 '13 at 11:28
