Today THE LION KING was released on BluRay, BluRay 3D, and DVD in North America! The Lion King is Disney’s 32nd classically animated movie, and is widely considered one of the greatest animated masterpieces of our time. Not only was The Lion King critically acclaimed, it also was (and still is) a blockbuster hit, and was close to breaking a billion dollars at the world wide box-office.
The basic plot for The Lion King, as provided on the back of the BluRay, is an extraordinary coming-of-age adventure as Simba, a lion cub who cannot wait to be king, searches for his destiny in the great “Circle of Life”.
In North America, on September 16, 2011, The Lion King was re-released in theaters in a special edition converted 3D. This was released for a limited two week run in theaters, but due to the great success at the box office, it was extended for an extra week.
Today, it came to our attention that The Lion King 3D will also be given a short re-release in the UK starting THIS Friday, October 7th! If you have yet to see The Lion King or are hesitant to see it in theaters because you do not enjoy 3D films, we highly recommend you check out our review on the movie and its 3D conversion.
