Latest Movie News Headlines

Disney is bringing back The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Finding Nemo, and Monsters Inc. for 3D

Oct. 4, 2011by: Niki Stephens

Yes, this article does give me an excuse to talk about my love for THE LITTLE MERMAID. Ya, I'm sure you're thinking, "Every chick loves that movie". SO...

I didn't get to see it at the movies in 1989 so it will be nice to see it on the big-screen when Disney re-releases it in 3D. Yes, I will by pass my 3D issues just for that damn movie.

With the huge success of THE LION KING 3D, Disney/Pixar has decided to re-release other films in 3D (you knew it would happen). Here's what's coming up:

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST January 13, 2012

FINDING NEMO September 14, 2012

MONSTERS INC. January 18, 2013 (Monsters University, a prequel to the original film, arrives in theaters in Disney Digital 3D on June 21, 2013)

THE LITTLE MERMAID September 13, 2013

Do I give a shit that they are converting these to 3D then re-releasing them in the theaters? Nope. It's not like they're remaking them. Like I said before about THE LITTLE MERMAID, it gives me a chance to see Disney films that I did not get to see when I was younger in the theater. Several of my friends went to see THE LION KING 3D and said it really wasn't that bad. They were just thrilled to relive the experience. They spent their money on something they knew they would enjoy rather than take a gamble on some crapfest.

Extra Tidbit: Did any of you guys go see THE LION KING 3D?

I'm down. I guess. Hesitant on the 3D.

Disney used to do rereleases in theaters way back when. And I love Disney. But I'll agree that Aladdin needs to be on that list.

Where the fack is the Incredibles? It seems like it's Pixar's red-headed stepchild. Especially since it was released last to Blu-Ray with only a couple of crappy new features.

I just want Hercules and Tarzan to be on Blu-Ray already, since they are my favorite Disney animated films, and also Lion King, but have that already

Actually pretty excited they're expanding Beauty and the Beast in theaters. I was pretty bummed when I found out the 3D showings were only in LA last month.

Watch in 2D

Saw Lion King in old fashioned 2D during the rerelease. It was awesome. Will do the same with these.

Is anyone else concerned about how soon Beauty and the Beast will be coming out? It makes me wonder if the 3D conversion will be any good with only 3 months up their sleeve. Hopefully they already started before the announcement

Yeah, actually BATB was converted before The Lion King and was suppose to have a Jan/Feb 2010 release date, but then they delayed it "indefinitely" and The Lion King came out. Weird. But here it is now

I used to watch Beauty & The Beast at least once a week for an entire year or more when I was a kid. I absolutely love that movie. I'm a 24 year old guy, but I'm probably going to get all sentimental when 'Tale as Old as Time' starts playing in the cinema. It'll be weird. I'll suddenly feel like I'm 3-feet tall and wanna' run into a Toys R' Us to pick up a Beast mug or toy or anything to do with the Beast!

Word

I wish they were just re-releasing them in 2D, and that ALADDIN was on the list, but this is great. I miss the days of yore when movies came back to theaters

I wish people would stop going to these 3D scam. Maybe then, when those 3D re-releases bomb, they would stop.
I know they wouldn't be making as much money, but as many people would still go see those re-releases if they were in 2D.
And seems like most people, well a lot of my friends anyway, go to these 3D things but still can't stop complaining about the fact it's in 3D... sigh

Went and saw The Lion King 3D re-release and enjoyed the shit out of it. So I'm down with this, especially Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid. But where the f*** is Aladdin? That was always my favorite...

I'm gonna go ahead and predict none of them will make as much moolah as The Lion King 3D and as a result will force Disney to find some other way to make bucketloads of money with little effort. With any luck...they will turn to compelling, orginal material that is visually captivating, but I'm not holding my breath. Disney is fundamentally changed, and not in a way that is conducive to anything new or particularly boundary-pushing.

Well, in France, aside of a few screening, TLK 3D was only re-released in BR. And, in some countries B&TB 3D is already available in BR.
