In light of the recent trailer for Finding Nemo 3D I figured it necessary to make this post. I feel like Disney is taking a lot of backlash for something that they really shouldn’t. Let me explain.

I want you to think about your favorite Disney movie right now. Picture it, in all its fantastic glory. The first time you probably saw it was on VHS. Low quality, but that didn’t make it any less magical. Now think of that same Disney movie on DVD. How much brighter the colors were and how much more alive it felt to watch. It brought back memories and because, for me at least, it wasn’t too far after VHS you could still enjoy them. Hell, I personally will probably always love watching Disney, but that’s beside the point.

Now think of it now. That favorite Disney movie you love. Maybe you have kids or nieces or nephews, whatever. And ya, you can show them the VHS or the DVD. But we remember seeing them in theaters. Tarzan, The Lion King, all those lovely films. Disney putting those classics back out in 3D is not only a good move on their part, they do honestly make a lot, but it also brings a lot of that magic back. And in 3D! I’ve never been much on the 3D bandwagon for most movies. But I saw The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast in 3D and I was astounded at the depth and life it brought into the films.

Finding Nemo is also simply one of those movies that would look stunning in 3D. All those amazing underwater scenes, frankly I’m surprised they haven’t done The Little Mermaid yet (though I’m sure it’s soon to come). And it’s not like Disney is doing a piss-poor job of re-making them either. They put a lot of time and effort into the work and that really shines through.

Disney may do a lot of things, but it never stops thinking about how to make people’s days as magical as possible. If you or your loved ones wanted to remember and share a great movie, I can think of no better way than a Disney one in 3D.

Now go watch a movie! :)

And, for the record, my favorite is Hercules.

    The only noticeable 3D in ‘The Lion King’ was Zazu’s butt for like two seconds in the beginning. 

    • Dlmarvin05

      The 3D, which is another reason I really like it, wasn’t like the pop out kind. It was more like the Avatar movie where it gave it depth. My favorite scene was when Scar and Mufasa were talking in the cave. You could like see out of the cave; you felt like you were inside. It was really incredible

    I’m not a big fan of the whole 3D gimmick, but anything that allows me to relive some of my favourite movies on the big screen is good in my eyes. Plus, the multiplexes in my city will often have a few 2D showings playing, so you don’t even have to pay to watch the pointless 3D.

    I hate 3D, but if it’s the only reason why Disney will re-release these movies for younger generations to enjoy, then so be it.

    I usually hate 3D and I don’t think it made any difference when it came to The Lion King (Beauty and the Beast looked especially beautiful, though) but… Those are my two favourite Disney films, two of my favourite films ever. It was so wonderful to see them again on the big screen, with friends who also grew up watching them, singing along to all the songs. It made these beloved films special in a whole new way. So I completely agree with you. I judged Disney for a bit when they first announced the 3D re-releases but now I say, bring it, Disney.

      Interesting, I actually thought they did a better job converting The Lion King than Beauty and the Beast.  TLK had this amazing depth and presence.  BatB felt a little to gimmicky in the 3D.  Too many things pointing in your face.  Ideal 3D is suppose to be a deep canvas going into the z-space back and not forward. BatB had some awkward pop-up moments that were very 50′s-style 3D.  Anyway, I think I was also really impressed with TLK because it was the first traditional animated film in 3D of recent times and it looked amazing how much they could do with flat drawings.  BatB was nice too, but it since the TLK conversion came first I guess it had a bigger impression on me that this was even possible.

    I was against everything becoming 3D at first because some movies just don’t seem like they have enough for a 3D movie.  However, I have been lately thinking that it was okay, or I was just getting used to the idea.  After reading your post, I have to agree 100 percent with you.  I mean, it’s not like they are hiring new actors to do voiceovers and all that, right?   So, no big deal.

    • Dlmarvin05

      Thank you :) I hope maybe you go see it, it really will be something special :D I plan to lol

  • Amanda J Taylor

    You know. I went and saw The Lion King and The Beauty and the Beast, but I didn’t see either in 3D. I LOVED seeing them in theatre’s but I am really not a big fan of 3D.

    • Dlmarvin05

      But at least you got the chance to see :) Honestly, I’d recommend the 3D version of Finding Nemo because they aren’t really doing the pop-out aspect, more the like “you feel inside” the movie part. Like Avatar, only Disney. I would love to feel like I’m in the ocean with Dory x)

  • akacj7

    you may have just convinced to go see Nemo in 3D. it is my favorite disney pixar film after all. i could probably put up with a bigger ticket price and some cheap glasses to relive some of my childhood. =)

    • Dlmarvin05

      awesome! I can’t wait to see it myself :) A friend of mine has a little girl that loves Finding Nemo and he was so happy that it was coming out; He says she can’t stop talking about it :D

    I went to see Beauty and the Beast in 3D yesterday, partly to see if 3D made a difference and partly because it’s my favourite disney movie. Can’t say it added anything though, tbh, but I enjoyed it because I love the film. I think the visuals would have been equally (if not more) stunning in 2D since the colours and animation had been restored to it’s best. Unfortunately, it still bothers me that 3D dulls colours significantly. But yes, I see completely what you mean about younger kids seeing it at the theatre. There was a dad with two little daughters there yesterday and they were both seeing the movie for the first time, which was very sweet.

     For Finding Nemo though, I wont be going except maybe to see  it in 2D, simply because it was the stunning colours shown in the animation that made the movie so special to me. With 3D dulling them, I’d rather just see it in its original beautiful form!

    • Dlmarvin05

      Did you see Lion King in 3D? I thought the colors were beautiful in that! I didn’t see either in 2D though so I can’t properly compare other than versus usual DvD quality. 
      That guy and his little girls? So cute <3 :)

    I think it’s wonderful that people like me, kids who were born during the 90′s, get a chance to see them in theaters. I grew up with them, watching them all the time, and it’s so nice to see them on the big screen!

    • Dlmarvin05

      same! I really want them to make Hercules in 3D x) but it’ll be awhile I think :(

    I don’t mind the 3d Disney movies at all ESP. Because I live the special edition glasses they give out. It’s only in the kid size glasses but I normally get those any way because they fit better. I would love to see Cinderella and The Little Mermaid back in theaters. Also so many people complain about Disney just trying to make more money with 3D releases but the complainers don’t acknowledge that they’re re-released in 2D as well.
    I also feel a bit old, b/c of Nemo being brought back seeing as how I saw in theaters haha

    • Dlmarvin05

      lmao same here! 

      I remember seeing Tarzan in theaters clear as day and I was only 7 x)

      • http://twitter.com/eiVega eiVega

        Ha…I remember The Little Mermaid and even Oliver and Company in theaters!  If you’re old, what does that make me?!  I remember live before Ariel took the world by storm.  It was an amazing time in that early fandom.

  • sarahd15

    I love that these classic movies I was obsessed with as a child are returning to the big screen! I prefer to go see them in 2D, but it doesn’t matter to me, as long as I’ve got my movie ticket, I will love the experience.

    • Dlmarvin05

      ^ this lol

  • BlueBronze

    I LOVE that they’re rereleasing it, since I was too young to see a lot of them in theatres, but I wish they wouldn’t do it in 3D. It doesn’t add a whole lot to it and drives up ticket prices.

    However, I don’t understand why they’re releasing Finding Nemo. Sure, it’s REALLY popular, but pretty much every Disney movie is. I think they should release them from oldest to more recent.

    • Dlmarvin05

      well, along with the 3D, they do come back in 2D as well. So if you don’t want the 3D experience (which I would recommend honestly), you can still do 2D which is nice :)
      I do agree with the oldest-newest though, but people seem to forget Finding Nemo is actually pretty old now. It was released the first time 2003 which is over 9 years ago now!

    Yes, The Little Mermaid has been announced for a re-release in 3D but in the distant future.  It’s going to take a lot of time for that conversion.  The CGI Pixar movies are much easier to release in 3D than the traditional hand-drawn animation because they’re already built in 3D space.  They just have to be rendered out with two cameras now.  Also, The Little Mermaid was the very last 2D film to be painted on cells.  It’s just going to be a whole lot of work to convert it.  I’m working on a traditional hand-drawn 3D short right now and the whole process is a beast and we split up the levels from the beginning!  Anyway, I personally enjoy 3D and own a 3D tv and blu-ray player. We had all the VHS tapes back when I was a kid and upgraded most of them to DVD but now that I live on my own I have to rebuild my Disney library.  I want as many of them released in 3D blu-ray so I can fully enjoy. I honestly don’t care that much about the theatrical release, as long as I get a new blu-ray.  The disc bundles always come with 3D and reg blu-ray so you still have the option to watch it in either form.  I think we’ll have a lot more Pixar re-releases than Disney traditional re-releases just because the nature of that work.  BTW, my favorite Disney movie is The Hunchback of Notre Dame.  I say bring ‘em on!

    Aladdin all day! I’d love to see the Genie in the cave and the magic carpet ride. Also when Jafar converts to the sorcerer. I’m all for watching all of these in theater…again.

    • Dlmarvin05

      omg, that would be amazing to see! :)
