Simba and Mufasa from The Lion King

Original Film:
3D Re-Release:

Episode #84 for The Lion King 3D, in which our protagonist thinks back to a time when you could count on Disney to re-release their films every so often, marvels at just how damn good the movie is (even in 3D), and learns a valuable lesson in hard drive capacity.

A Mob Numbering 6

    Jon will always be wrong on Casablanca.

    I am thinking that this is such a "coming of age" movie that Hub should take Kidlet...Hmmm...pondering.

    "Does this look like a basement?" great line.
    I am interested in seeing this release because Lion King is such a masterpiece, but I have never been wowed by a cel animation style film shown in 3D. All of the ones I have seen (ie: the Chip & Dale short "Working for Peanuts" shown before Meet the Robinsons) have almost made me wish I was watching in 2D.
    Great Wayhomer! Thanks!

    As long as you understand that it's just a different way of seeing the film and you can go back to the old way anytime you like, it's fine. If I had seen this as the only way ever to see the film, I would have been disappointed. But when the 3D pops, man, it is fantastic. Think "Leaping Scar."
