    If they have material that was filmed for the digital multiplane camera, then it can be relatively easily (It's still work, it's just easier!) converted to 3D since the items that need to be made to "pop out" (shorter focal length) are already known.

    According to Wikipedia, all the film after Little Mermaid were filmed w/ this, so it's easier than with other 2D material. Ex: Making Plane Crazy 3D would be just as hard as for making Casablanca 3D.

    I would love to see RR in 3D as well.

    Here's a link to an article on Slate regarding the process
    Huh? I would think a movie made in 3D (as in everyone is on a 3d field) is much easier than converting a movie especially an old film into 3D....plus I think almost all animated movies now are being made so they can be ether 2D or 3D (besides Winnie the Pooh)

    Just a note, J.L. was the Executive Producer or something to that affect for "The Lion King 3D." So, although I may think he has an "ego" at times, he is the one who helped get "The Lion King" back into the limelight and bring in the big bucks. Because of this, I'd be all for "Finding Nemo" or "The Incredibles" going 3D in the future.

    Oh, and an exciting note, I spotted a "Hidden Mickey" in the film while I was watching it. It's probably always been there, but I never saw it until now. When Timon raises up a log in the jungle to show Simba all the grubs to eat, one of the bugs has the "Hidden Mickey" on its back/abdomen. It's a green bug in the upper-right of the screen. I had a major, internal Disney orgasm when I saw it. (Is "orgasm" an appropriate word to use on this board? LOL)

    'Lion King' Shoots to List of Top 10
    Grossing Films of All-Time Domestically

    The 3D re-release of Disney’s The Lion King has propelled the classic animated tune to No. 10 on the elite roster of all-time top grossing films at the domestic box office.

    Lion King ended Sunday with a total domestic cume of $408.2 million, besting the $403.7 million earned by Sony's Spider Man and the $402.1 million earned by Paramount's sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

    The re-release of Lion King itself has earned $79.7 million, beating all expectations. Overseas, where it is still rolling out, it has grossed $19 million for a worldwide total of $98.7 million.

    "The Lion King is a timeless classic whose characters and story are as beloved today as ever. Breaking into the top 10 is a testament that quality entertainment for people of all ages is a cornerstone to achieving such incredible success," Disney executive vice president of distribution Dave Hollis said.

    In North America, Lion King came in No. 3 over the weekend after placing No. 1 the previous two weekends in one of the biggest box office upsets in recent memory. More than 90 percent of the grosses have come from 3D locations (the film is being offered on conventional screens as well).

    Lion King is one of only three animated films on the all-time top 10 list after Shrek 2 ($441.2 million) and Toy Story 3 ($415 million).

    Lion King has a strong shot at even eclipsing Toy Story 3, although the Diamond Blu-Ray edition of the film will be released on Oct. 4. Rival studios have questioned whether Lion King will stay in theaters once the Blu-Ray is released, but all indications are that exhibitors will keep playing the toon.

    No. 1 on the domestic list of top-grossing films is Avatar ($760.5 million), followed by Titanic ($600.8 million), The Dark Knight ($533.3 million), Star Wars ($461 million), Shrek 2, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial ($435.1 million), Star Wars: Episode I--The Phantom Menace ($431.1 million), Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest ($423.3 million), Toy Story 3 and The Lion King.

    Just a clarification, 3D movies, real-life movies are filmed in 3D. For 3D animated movies, the software "camera" for the "other" eye is moved slightly to the right or left. (This just means that everything is computed once more). There is no additional people work that is done for it. i.e. no conversion to 3D in that case. Doing "nothing" is much easier than converting any day. :-)

    So....

    Filmed in 3D : Very easy (almost no work; some (2x) extra digital storage/computation)
    Filmed in Multiplane Camera : Still work, much harder then filming. Easier than below
    Filmed in a Single plan Camera : most arduous, since artists have to determine what "sticks" out and how much.

    We took the kids to see it and everyone loved it! I am not surprised by the great success of the 3D release! It was a real treat to see this film back on the big screen!
