There's no doubt that they made a new master... even if it is from the old one. We'll know as soon as the Blu-ray goes to pressing.
It looks like film because of the warm toned colours. In my limited understanding, film has a typical look which digital doesn't, any good masters created from film elements have this warm toned look. Look at Lawrence of Arabia, Look at Ben-Hur, look at Jaws.
Look at the 35mm still frames of Jurassic Park that I posted , and you'll find the similarity in colouring. The current bluray has a bluish tinge which was not how the film looked in its original 35 mm form, as evidenced from the 35 mm stills and the recent 35 mm master from which the 3D version is being created!
This is what I believe to be the case- Logical deduction, you may call it, as I do not have any access to the Universal executives or whoever are involved in the 3D remastering. This the best that I can guess from the evidence I have.
You're right as well, we'll all see how the3D Blu Ray remaster looks, as we all know now from that infamous letter sent from Universal that the 2D disc will have the same decade old master that was used in the Trilogy edition! Universal is notorious for playing cheap, but emptying the buyers eager pockets, so why should this time be any different???
