Going retro on The Lion King, which is now back in 3D both the cinema’s and on Blu-Ray, watching old Disney animated movie tie-in’s fastfood chains at YouTube. BTW, no Aladdin is not listed to get a 3D make-over in the near future. From what I heard a bunch of Pixar movies and The Little Mermaid are. Glad too because I don’t believe 3D adds that much except higher price tickets and eye strain.
I stumbled upon a Burger King promo TV spot with some orginal animation in it. It’s low budget of course and TV spot itself is old school but that’s what I like about it.
Not directly Aladdin related but many Disney animators worked on both movies so here’s the trailer of Beauty and the Beast in 3D. No need to take out your 3D glasses though because it’s in classic 2D. I’m blown away by the beautiful and rich colors the ballroom has never looked so beautiful. The Lion King is rumored to be next if successful it’s paving the way for a potential Aladdin 3D conversation in a few years.
Trough Variety Disney brought the news that they are re-doing Beauty and the Beast in 3D for it’s 2010 re-release in theaters. Under the supervision of the films producer Dohn Hann and directors Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale the post production team goes back to core by using original animation files seperating the film by it’s elements, character, background and effects.
Can you imagine scenes like the wolf attack, Be Our Guest and Beauty and the Beast will look like? I don’t (the current Imax 3D film is Madagascar 2, didn’t like the first one) but I trust those guys know what theyr’e doing and eagerly awaits Beauty to return to the silver screen and hope that if it’s a success my Aladdin will follow along with The Lion King and other 90’s films made with the CAPS system.
Aladdin’s showstoppers Friend Like and Prince Ali will look amazing not to mention the feeling you are on Carpet with Al and Jas to experince A Whole New World.
