MediaStinger: "Naaaaaaaaaaaaa sibenya babagish shibaba! Disney’s popular classic The Lion King, my favorite animated movie, demonstrated its timelessness by roaring back to (its circle of) life via a 3D re-release this weekend."
I was expecting a solid box-office result this weekend, but even I wasn't expecting that much of a tally for The Lion King.
Definitely didn't expect it to do that well. Of course, it wasn't going against anything of any real note as far as publicity and hype go. Just a couple "indie" films. I have no desire to go see it in 3D. However, I'll definitely be picking it up on Blu-ray.
So....what do you guys think is next on the list? We all know Disney isn't going to sit back and let these numbers go by, another "classic" will be coming out probably next year for them to cash in.
Be cool if it was Mulan. Movie had some pretty epic battle scenes!!!
Aladin. That seems like the next best pick for 3d(maybe Mulan too... or Pinocchio(3d nose growing ftw)...)
Good. Maybe this will persuade Disney to want to make more hand-drawn films like the old days... Pixar is nice and all, but hand-drawn films are the most memorable to me. Aladdin, Lion King, Hercules, Snow White, Pinocchio, Mulan, Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, etc.... This made me really sad: http://www.nytimes.com/2005...
