Star Wars 3-D Movie Rumors

"I have a bad feeling about this..."
Yesterday Market Saw posted on their blog page an 'exclusive' bit of information concerning the future of the Star Wars movies and also 3-D movies.
The big piece is that George Lucas is getting ready to unleash a NEW trilogy of movies upon us. Not just new movies but new movies in 3-D. This is a separate notion from the current live action television show (set in between Episodes III & IV). Apparently Lucas is still considering converting the original films from 2-D to 3-D. The rumor is Lucas now wants three new movies that he would produce and not direct.
It gets better. Who would Lucas want to direct these movies? How about Steven Spielberg? Along with Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola was mentioned as a possible director for a future film.
Now let's think about all of this. Logistically, how feasible is all of this? There has been talk of doing 9 and even 12 films in the Star Wars franchise. Those rumblings were eventually put to rest. Lucas had stated that after Episode III, he wanted to move on to other things. I think the problem was he was always so actively involved with his creations. If another trilogy were to be made, where would it fall in the Star Wars timeline? As much as I'd love for more movies, I just find it hard to believe this.
