Playing off the wild success of The Lion King 3D, Disney has announced several films which’ll be hitting theaters once more in 3D format!

- Beauty and the Beast 3D: 1/13/2012
- Finding Nemo 3D: 9/14/12
- Monsters Inc. 3D: 1/18/13
- The Little Mermaid 3D: 9/13/13

Very interesting move! Will you go see these films in theaters once they’re back? We’re particularly excited for The Little Mermaid.

    this is the BEST news ever!!

  • http://twitter.com/julegamache Jule Gamache

    I am so so so so so EXCITED for Beauty and the Beast!!!!!!!

  • Ashley

    As much as I LOVE all these films, I’m not sure I’d be willing to pay the outrageous 3D prices just to see them on the big screen again

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000064671775 Benjamin Swall-yarrington

      You can see them in 2D as well. They did that with the Lion King

      • Harry

        Did they?? I was about to say I’d be down to see all the 2D animated flicks on the big screen if they weren’t in 3D – I’m gonna have to look that up!

    I think this is a fantastic idea. Plays on peoples nostalgia for these movies, and introduces them to a new generation. Great business move for Disney to make millions and millions by barely doing anything. But you know every studio is going to jump on this and that could make it irritating. Nothing like seeing a movie on the silver screen though, and I think movies that are special to a huge number of people it is awesome to play them in theaters again; there are a bunch of movies I love and would go see in the theaters again just to have the experience.

  • Liam

    I’m really surprise that they’re doing this with Pixar movies.

  • Ilikecheesegirl

    OMG IM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!

    finding nemo will actually look amazing in 3D! Monsters Inc will also look really great. But I might actually see Finding Nemo in 3D!

  • katniss-potter

    Little Mermaid in 3D? Oh hell yeah! I don’t even care that I’ll be 26 by then (oh good god) I will be there!

  • http://twitter.com/Annanass777 Anna Diehm

    well, it is obvious that this is just to make a lot more money – but still, my first reaction was: Really, ooooooohhhhh, the little Mermaid! ;)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=523240646 Jasmine Dixon

    beauty and the beast!!! they should definitely do aladdin in 3d!

  • Lucy

    Finding Nemo and Monster Inc are two of my favourite films. I’m definitely going to go watch them!!

  • http://twitter.com/jessoneal84 Jessica O’Neal

    Beauty and the Beast! The Little Mermaid! So exciting!

  • Anonymous

    SO EXCITED! Yes, I realize that this is just a huge scheme to bring in money. And I am completely ok with that. =)

  • TheOneAndOnlyCliche

    MONSTER’S INC…just before the prequel, am I right?
    And, I, er, never saw Beauty and the Beast…ahem…

  • Heath

    My four favorite Disney movies: Peter Pan, Pocahontas, The Lion King, & The Little Mermaid.

  • http://www.facebook.com/emily.kimble Emily Kimble

    I wish the Little Mermaid wasn’t so far away :( that’s the one I was really, really hoping for! Beauty and the Beast is pretty close though!

  • Erika

    SO EXCITED. WOW. I don’t care if this is an attempt to cash in on 3-D, I adore these movies and would love to be able to see them on the big screen again, plus it’s a great chance for a new generation to see them. I’m most excited about Beauty and the Beast. (I’m depressed that I missed seeing the Lion King, so I’m going to make sure I see all of these)

  • http://giddyauntflamingnora.tumblr.com Jenny Tattum

    awesome :) I think they should do Snow White or Bambi too!

  • Shannon

    BEST. NEWS. EVER!!!!!!!!

    • Theaterboy1

      AGREED!! :)

  • Taylor

    This is why I went to see Lion King. It’s not my favorite Disney movie, but I really wanted it to do well so I could see others in theaters, Little Mermaid being my priority. SO hugely excited.

  • Theaterboy1

    Best thing from Disney! I was hoping these movies would get their turn at 3D!!!!!!!!!!! I predicted Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid but pleasantly surprised at Monster’s Inc. and Finding Nemo!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1840730980 Michael Vartanian

    This is stupid.  Please tell me we won’t have to wait until 2013 for The Little Mermaid blu ray!

  • Mastermack13

    where the fuck is alladin

    • http://twitter.com/laura_gally14 Laura Gallant

      I agree!!! Aladdin was one of my favourite childhood movies! Hopefully they will do it eventually…..

    • hufflepuffluff

      Exactly. Finding Nemo is just random. Monsters Inc., I guess I understand, with the sequel coming out. But no Aladdin is just sad.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Diego-Hernandez/539018211 Diego Hernandez

        what about pinocchio WTF!?!?!?!

  • Shelby

    This is a much batter idea than the stupid “Disney Vault” I’m sure they will make way more money, and we get to see our favorite Disney movies on the big screen again! It’s a win-win scenario. I saw Lion King and I can’t wait to see Nemo! Great idea Disney!

    what the hell!! the little mermaid in 2013? im pissed… 

  • Caitlin

    When my friend and I were watching Lion King 3D the other day, they had one of the promo things where Andrew G was in Hollywood Blvd. before the movie and there was an ad there on one of the signs behind him for Beauty and the Beast 3D. We were sitting in the movie theatre flailing because we were super excited. 

  • Hannah

    Ahhh Beauty and the Beast is my favourite disney movie, I’m so excited!

  • Anonymous

    yay! beauty and the beast and the little mermaid are some of my faves!

  • Maria

    Considering that I remember seeing Nemo in theaters, that’s not terribly exciting, but I’m psyched for Beauty and the Beast and Little Mermaid!

    :D YEY!

  • Princess

    I am so happy right now, I have always wanted to see Beauty and the Beast in theaters!  The Little Mermaid will be so fun too!  YEA DISNEY!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000064671775 Benjamin Swall-yarrington

    Boo!!! This 3Ding of movies, some hand drawn that weren’t even meant to be three dimentional should never be made in 3D. It’s stupid!! Has anyone who’s actually seen the Lion King in 3D actually amazed by the 3D effects? I’d much rather disney focus their attension on new movies, and if they feel a need to re-release movies, please just do it imax. 3D is crap.

    • Anonymous

      Yes, 3D is crap.  You’d be delighted to know that because of modern technology, you could just remove one of your eyes with a tea spoon and experience the world in crystal clear 2D!

    • Alertafifalwonder

      Actually, yes I was. The 3D angle gave certain scenes more depth. I quite enjoyed the effect.

      • LGray1983

        I was too. And I’m not a big fan of 3D usually.

    Oh my gosh this has to be like a sign from god! My birthday is jan 16 and my favorite disney, beauty and the beast starts 1/13!!!!!

  • Luna

    I *have* to see ‘The Little Mermaid”. I adored that as a child. I wouldn’t mind seeing “Monster’s Ink” either. I saw it when it was originally in theaters and I had a doll of Boo that I took with me. :]

  • GoldenGirl

    I am excited to see the movies in theaters again, but I do not want them in 3D.  That’s just a gimmick to make more money, but the quality is terrible.  The picture in a converted 3D movie is not nearly so clear as the original.  I hope they give the option of these in 2D as well…

  • http://twitter.com/CatKoski Cat Koski

    Finding Nemo and Monsters Inc. need to be replaced with Pocahontas and Peter Pan.

  • http://twitter.com/wenuwish Rhiannon Walters


  • Daniel Mefford

    aww was really hoping for aladdin and hercules

  • Kennedy

    Just rerelease the movies don’t make them 3D. Your better than that disney!

  • 7Starrchasers

    Just got back from The Lion King…2013 is too far away!!!

  • Darkbunni

    *sigh* They just don’t get it, do they? Has it really not occurred to them that everyone is going to see these movies again on the big screen because they’re great movies?? And who doesn’t want to see their favourite films in the cinema again? The stupid 3D has nothing to do with it – it’s a cheap gimmick that does nothing to improve classic 2D animated films like this. Just a quick glance at the comments shows that. People are excited to see things like ‘The Little Mermaid’ or ‘Beauty and the Beast’ in the cinema, but most people I’ve talked to aren’t even going to bother with the 3D at all.

    finding nemo here i come

  • http://erictheperson.tumblr.com Eric Coppes

    Yay for stupid and pointless 3D conversion on movies that were great the way they were…

  • Anya

    I really, really hate 3D but I don’t even care – I’m going to see The Lion King this weekend and will most definitely see Beauty and the Beast when it comes out just for the joy of watching them in the big screen again. :)
    (Disney is very very smart)

  • http://twitter.com/taylie27 taylore thompson

    I love Beauty and the Beast!! My favorite Disney movie ever! Followed by the little mermaid but that won’t be out for quite a while.

  • LGray1983

    I miss the Disney Renaissance days so much. I will see any 90s Disney movie in theaters, those films were all a part of my childhood and so great.

  • http://twitter.com/xhpfanatic Grace Chen


  • Liz

    BEAUTY and the BEAST!!!!!!!! :D

  • Liam

    I’d much rather they simply re-released these movies into theaters. I could do without the 3-D.

  • Anonymous

    Cool but I want to see Aladdin, it’s my favorite Disney movie ever.  And the scene in the Cave of Wonders would be awesome in 3D.  I didn’t see Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast in the theater the first time around.
