Who know that 2D animation could benefit so much from adding the 3rd dimension to it.


The Lion King in 3D is absolutely breathtaking. There is layer upon layer of depth to every scene and the popout is also more subtle but nice. The separation of the background from the foreground and all the objects in between really makes it feel as if you are inside a moving popout book. Disney wen't all out and rendered every object separately from each other. I was expecting an effect similar to what you get with 2d to 3D conversions but Disney shows that 2D animation can look just as good as the CGI in 3D.


A few great examples are the intro scene where the birds are flying. Great layering and the final set of birds that come into the shot are actually poping out of the screen. The final scene with Simba vs. Mustafa is also great with amazing fire effects and embers flying out of the screen and into your face.


I really hope Disney does some more 2D 3D
animations soon.

Really, are you kidding me? Have you not seen this movie before! LOL

The movie came out 94? Then Disney puts the movie in the vault for years, I wouldn't be surprised for younger people to have not seen it. I'm 30 and this movie came out when I was in 7th grade or so, I've seen it a bunch of times but my kids have never seen it.

That would be

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show) Scar, his uncle whom he fought at the end. Mufasa was his father.

The only good thing about lion king was the videogame on genesis/pc and the songs by elton john. the movie did not peak my interest. And it's day and night between how far pixar cg aimation has come now. Not sure i'll be getting this, 3d notwithstanding. I still havent seen some newer 3d cg animations like HTTYD, megamind ..i'll stick to buying those.

the last thing the world needs is 2d animation in 3d.



So you don't like it and therefore it shouldn't be made? For you and people who agree with you, you have the 2D version don't you? For those of us who like 3D, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Disney creating a 3D version of the movie imo. We need more 3D content and animated movies look really good in 3D!

You're really asking for trouble when you name your baby Scar. One of those self-fulfilling prophecies, no doubt.

I was supposed to see this on Saturday as I had free tickets to see it in a theater but I wound up in the hospital over the weekend. Thanks for the review. I have this pre-ordered.
