BLURAY Release Date: October 4th, 2011
Simba, Mufasa, Nala, Timon and Pumbaa are back and better than ever this fall when Disney?s “The Lion King” roars into theaters and homes in breathtaking 3D. A special two-week theatrical extravaganza kicks off Sept. 16, 2011, showcasing the Oscar®- and Golden Globe®- winning film on the big screen in Disney Digital 3DTM for the first time ever, and its highly anticipated home entertainment debut kicks off October 4, celebrating the Diamond Edition release of the epic movie “The Lion King” in high-definition Blu-rayTM and Blu-ray 3DTM.
“The Lion King? is the best-selling home entertainment release of all time—and this is „The Lion King? like never before,” said Bob Chapek, president of distribution, The Walt Disney Studios. “The all-new 3D format immerses viewers in the epic settings and puts them face-to-face with these beloved characters. We?re showcasing one of the all-time favorite Disney movies in theaters and making it available in Blu- ray hi-def and in Blu-ray 3D—it?s the must-see, must-own title for everyone.”
Nearly a decade since “The Lion King” last appeared on the big screen, the upcoming theatrical release invites new generations into the “Circle of Life.” The two-week, 3D-only presentation is a planned wide domestic release—the biggest since the film?s 1994 debut—and the film?s first-ever 3D release.
The Blu-ray debut marks the first time “The Lion King” has been available in any form since 2004. Featuring pristine high definition picture and sound, the Blu-ray creates an incredible at-home experience with a host of picture and sound enhancements, interactive features and bonus content, including a new set of hilarious animated bloopers.
