The Lion King, Beauty, to be released in 3D

Empire online is reporting that Walt Disney will be releasing Beauty and The Beast and The Lion King will be released in 3D in the future.

First, Hahn revealed that Beauty And The Beast isn?t the only Disney classic about to go 3D. A certain cartoon starring a warthog and a meerkat will be returning to cinemas too. ?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,? he said, explaining that we shouldn?t expect to see it for a while yet, since the Disney boffins are taking their time in making Simba, Zazu et al pop out of the screen. ?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.?

The article goes on to talk about the sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
