I saw this today in 3D.
The very first time I went to the cinema, I saw The Lion King, and it's always been a special movie to me.
I've always loved it, I even wore out the tape on my VHS copy of it.
The 3D actually is a slight improvement on a nigh-perfect film.
It's generally subtle (you can watch the 3D footage without the glasses and see the main action fine) but probably unnecessary.
The true joy is looking at the eye-popping colours, the best voice-acting there's ever been, and the great soundtrack.
Superb, and I give The Lion King 5 stars yet again, just as I did when I was 3 years old, I do as 21.

Saw it today in 3D. Loved it! Admittedly it is one of my favourite films of all time, but I found it truly breath-taking. It was as if I was seeing it for the first time all over again! I'll agree that the 3D is slightly superfluous for the most part but, in some scenes, particularly perspective shots, it works magnificently. Take all your family and friends!

Seen this today.It was magic to see it in the cinema again with my young girls who have never seen it.
The 3D was almost pointless,i couldnt really notice it.
I was just curious for such a classic.Anyone with kids,go to the 2D version.
A timeless wonderful 5 star classic.

"It didn't need 3D"

Don't give it 5 bloody stars then!

This is a lazy re release cash in from the money grabbing film studio tossers.

agreed - i'd rather see more classic re-releases than the same old new pap and 'reboots' we get lately! it's always cool to see a film you love in the cinema, it's a little bit magic (until some chavs come in and start messing about - but that's a whole other thread lol)

Loved seeing it last night in 3D especially this part which always makes me tearful not sure why;

A wonderful animated classic even better in 3D on the big screen. Highly recommended.

I hadnt seen this on the big screen in nearly 2 decades(gulp!),and before the anti-nostalgia brigade pipe up,this isnt about nostalgia,it was great then and it is great now!

Agreed but maybe The Jungle Book has the edge when it comes to Disney Jungle Musicals.

Its much more,er,musical,but the Lion King is a better film overall for me,a much more complete package.
Both brilliant though!

After enjoying it on first release, I went with my wife to see it in 3D.

Obviously the film is still great, but the 3D not only failed to add to the experience, I found it distracting. This was a 5 star masterpiece of the genre, so why try to improve on it? Was it lacking in 2D originally? Of course not.

Personally, I'd have removed a star on account of the 3D. They managed to make a great film appear gimmicky.

Coming soon: Raging Bull in 3D - because, you know, De Niro's performance needs bringing to life in the way that only 3D can.

Yawn. If you don't like 3D, don't stump up money to watch 3D.

Yeaaaaaaaah, if it ain't broke don't fix it. I'm not a fan of the whole 3D craze (if the movie was made for 3D then that's ok).  Nevertheless I'm so excited it's back at the movies again.

Can't believe the film came out over 20 years ago. My oh MY!

I remember seeing this as a kid and my eyes still swell up today when Mufasa dies (This ain't no spoiler, if you're just weird).

Hey, just out of curiosity, does anyone have this on DVD? I heard a rumor that Disney never released The Lion King on DVD, which I thought was so weird seeing how popular it is. Thought it might have been a conspiracy. Tried looking it up on the internet and all the shops...even when I was in Disneyland, I couldn't find it! Have the feeling I may have seen it in the New Release section of the video store but not 100%.






Hi

Yes it did come out on DVD back in 2003 I have this edition. It has come back out on DVD and Blu Ray late  last year.

On first viewing The Lion King in 1998, aged 6, I can still remember laughing, crying and singing throughout; all three significant reactions procured by each and every classic Disney animation, especially this. Along with Snow White, this is definitely one of my many favourites, and not just from childhood, even now, although my perception has changed, The Lion King still holds sterling appeal in many aspects of both filmmaking and animation. As one of the more contemporary Disney stalwart morality tales, perhaps the most revered by adults, emotions are stretched beyond compare as parents watch with their families, the uniting message of love transcends from screen to reality as Simba struggles with his beloved father Mufasa's wrongful death, coming-of-age beyond the African pride land and return to take his rightful place as the eponymous leader; such stories are not indifferent in the world where Evil Queens, deer hunters and fur-wearing designers are part of mythic villainy, but Scar is perhaps the darkest as he betrays and murders his own brother out of power-envy. Breathtaking as ever, it really doesn't need 3D, but nevertheless it remains among Disney's greatest achievements for another generation.
