Simba, Nala, Timon and Pumbaa are back this October and they’re set to look and sound better than ever thanks to a Blu-ray 3D makeover in a special Diamond Edition release. The heroic foursome roars into action in a new trailer for The Lion King 3D which you can check out below.
To mark the gang’s journey into a third dimension, US website The Hollywood Reporter has also revealed it will release a full 3D re-release in US cinemas from September. The Oscar winning epic will be screened at Disney’s flagship theatre, the El Capitan in Hollywood CA from September 2nd through to October 6th.
The Diamond Edition release has yet to receive an official distribution date in Europe, but when it does arrive, it’ll come in a BD and DVD Double Play pack.
Bob Chapek, president of distribution at Walt Disney Studios commented:
‘The Lion King is the best-selling home entertainment release of all time for us, but this is The Lion King like never before.’
