Software would do most of the work.

And robots will take our jerbs.
Seems as though you CAN use a converter with 3D Vision on CRT's ,And works on 100hz.
Star Wars didn't use CG until Episode 1.

Plus, after CG has been rendered, its all just film. To create a 3D effect they'd have to go back and re-render every scene from a slightly different angle. Assuming they still have all of the working files from the movie.

The older ones used physical models and green screens, so there isn't any way they could go back and do that. Plus, the special effects were basically hand drawn over the film to create the light sabers and lasers.

Unless they come up with some crazy software that can turn every scene in every frame of Star Wars into a 3D scene I don't think we'll ever see this.
