Same with Nightmare Before Christmas as well, maybe the triple dip for it will be the charm.

Well, yes, they'd have to. But the process would go something like this:

1. 2D telecine 2. apply DNR (since, as I mentioned above, this is more or less necessary for 3D conversion) 3. convert to 3D

My fear is that they will use the result of step 2 (a 2D master "cleaned up" for subsequent 3D conversion) instead of the result of step 1 (an untampered-with 2D master). Or they could just take the left-eye image from the final 3D version and use that as the 2D version. So basically there's a few different ways this could go wrong, and with Fox's record I'm not optimistic they'll avoid all of them.

I would support this if they do it with some grain. Here is hoping they make this right.
