    3-D “Lion King” To Premiere In Theatres this September and DVD in October

    Disney’s The Lion King roars into theaters and homes in breathtaking 3D. A special two-week theatrical extravaganza kicks off Sept. 16, 2011, showcasing the Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-winning film on the big screen in Disney Digital 3D™ for the first time ever, and its highly anticipated home entertainment debut kicks off October 4, celebrating the Diamond Edition release of the epic movie The Lion King in high-definition Blu-ray™ and Blu-ray 3D™.

    “The Lion King is the best-selling home entertainment release of all time—and this is The Lion King like never before,” said Bob Chapek, president of distribution, The Walt Disney Studios. “The all-new 3D format immerses viewers in the epic settings and puts them face-to-face with these beloved characters. We’re showcasing one of the all-time favorite Disney movies in theaters and making it available in Blu-ray hi-def and in Blu-ray 3D—it’s the must-see, must-own title for everyone.”

    Nearly a decade since The Lion King last appeared on the big screen, the upcoming theatrical release invites new generations into the “Circle of Life.” The two-week, 3D-only presentation is a planned wide domestic release—the biggest since the film’s 1994 debut—and the film’s first-ever 3D release.

    The Blu-ray debut marks the first Lion King has been available in any form since 2004. Featuring pristine high definition picture and sound, the Blu-ray creates an incredible at-home experience with a host of picture and sound enhancements, interactive features and bonus content, including a new set of hilarious animated bloopers.

    The Lion King: Diamond Edition home entertainment release will be available from the Disney Vault for a limited time only beginning October 4 as follows:
    • 4-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack (for the suggested retail price of $49.99 U.S./ $56.99 Canada)
      - The Lion King = Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray 2D + DVD + Digital Copy™
    • 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack (for the suggested retail price of $39.99 U.S./$46.99 Canada)
      - The Lion King = Blu-ray 2D + DVD
    • 8-Disc Trilogy (for the suggested retail price of $100.00 U.S./ $115.00 Canada)
      - The Lion King = Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray 2D + DVD + Digital Copy
      - The Lion King 1 ˝ = Blu-ray 2D + DVD
      - The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride = Blu-ray 2D + DVD
    And the one-disc DVD Edition will be available on November 15.

    The Lion King, first released in 1994, won the Oscar® for Best Original Score (Hans Zimmer) and Best Original Song (Elton John/Tim Rice “Can You Feel the Love Tonight”), earning Golden Globes® in both categories, as well as for Best Motion Picture—Comedy or Musical.

    The film inspired an immensely popular, Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical, which is currently featured on stages worldwide. It became the seventh longest-running musical in Broadway history in January 2011

    Hopefully Disney will actually follow through, unlike with Beauty and the Beast.

    Re: 3-D “Lion King” To Premiere In Theatres this September and DVD in October

    I'm beginning to get sick of 3-D already. Yeah, it can be fun and all sometimes, but....everybody's climbing on the 3-D bandwagon, and they're redoing all these 2-D classics in 3-D, and....I dunno, it's just lame. Not every 2-D movie needs to be 3-Dized. The studios are just doing this because of the higher ticket prices at the box office, and because they can. I dunno, it's cute and all, and at least it's not like colorization was, where it really ruins the original film.... it's just....I dunno, I guess it's making the novelty of 3-D not so novel.

    Still, something that can put classic films back in theaters, even for a limited run, is a good thing, I suppose.
