Disney Readying The Lion King 3D?
Off the box office success of the Toy Story 3-D, Walt Disney has plans of re-releasing and converting a few of their classics from the vault. First up…The Lion King 3D. Oscar nominated producer, Don Hahn, spoke with Empire and discussed the conversion:
“I’m actually trying to work out a 3D conversion of ‘The Lion King.’ I’ll be doing that when I go back to the States in a couple of weeks…It’s going to be spectacular – we will do a good job for ya! The technology is tremendous. We did ‘A Nightmare Before Christmas’ a few years ago and Tim thought it was better than the original because it allows you to walk onto the set.”
Considering how the 3D in Toy Story wasn’t anything spectacular, we can only hope Disney does Simba some justice.
