Lucasfilm has kept quiet about who will be doing the conversion process on their upcoming 3D release of the entire six episode Star Wars saga, but a new LinkedIn profile update indicates that Prime Focus and Hyderbad-based Roto artist Ramidi Ashwin Kumar have completed conversion work on at lease one movie, suspected to be Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.
Conversion house Focus is suspected to have completed rendering the first film in 3D
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader is among Prime Focus' most recent conversion work, of which it is quite proud. At this time, the company will only confirm that they have done certain unspecified tests on material given to them by Lucasfilm, and they are denying that the LinkedIn credit refers to a completed feature project. Lucasfilm has refused to return calls on the subject, according to Variety.
Full conversion details on the six Star Wars movies won't officially be released until we get closer to their purported 2012 release date.
Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope was released May 25th, 1977 and stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Cushing, Alec Guinness, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew. The film is directed by George Lucas.
