Experience The Lion King in 3D these school holidays


Disney have kindly sent over the trailer from the 3D re-issue of their classic film, The Lion King.

Simba, Mufasa, Nala, Timon and Pumbaa are back and better than ever when Disney’s The Lion King roars into cinemas and homes in breathtaking 3D. A strictly limited release in cinemas from September 22, 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 12, celebrating the Diamond Edition release of the epic movie The Lion King in high-definition Blu-ray™ and Blu-ray 3D™.


We took a look at this a few months back now, and the 3D is magnificent. It is amazing how much added depth can be gleaned from a film that is now frighteningly 17 years old. The award-winning Tim Rice/Elton John soundtrack, not to mention the voice of James Earl Jones, sounds similarly impressive in a theatre set-up. If you are seeing this for the first time, or want to recapture the magic for the first time in a generation, you must see this in cinemas.

The Lion King is released in 3D for a limited engagement on 22 September 2011 across Australia from Disney. It will then get a new release on DVD and debut on Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D on 12 October 2011.
