CATEGORIES Movie NewsAfter the 3D re-release of "The Lion King" raked in a staggering $29.3 million its opening weekend, it gave Disney execs an idea: let's keep doing this!
Between now and 2013, four Disney converted classics will make their way to the big screen. The first up is 1991 favorite "Beauty and the Beast," out this weekend. That will be followed later this year by 2003 hit, "Finding Nemo."
Disney has released a short trailer for the beloved classic, complete with a kinda hacked up version of Bobby Darin's "Beyond the Sea." The clip is a reminder of just how adorable the film is -- though hearing Albert Brooks, last seen sticking a fork into some poor gangster's eyeball in "Drive," as Nemo's doting dad is jarring? Yeah, definitely jarring.
"Finding Nemo 3D" opens Sept. 14th.
