“The Lion King” in 3d! Special Engagement Comes Out Sept. 16th!

Hey All!

You all know I’ve been excited and counting down until the Lion King comes out in 3D in theaters! I was so excited to see it at D23 and now it will finally be out this Friday!

The Lion King is unforgettable story with breathtaking animation, beloved characters and award-winning music! It’s a Disney classic that follows the adventures of Simba, the feisty lion cub who “just can’t wait to be king.” But his envious Uncle Scar has plans for his own ascent to the throne, and he forces Simba’s exile from the kingdom. Alone and adrift, Simba soon joins the escapades of a hilarious meerkat named Timon and his warmhearted warthog pal, Pumbaa. Adopting their carefree lifestyle of “Hakuna Matata,” Simba ignores his real responsibilities until he realizes his destiny and returns to the Pride Lands to claim his place in the “Circle of Life.”

The all-star vocal talents—including Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Whoopi Goldberg, James Earl Jones, Jeremy Irons, Ernie Sabella,Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Robert Guillaume, Cheech Marin and Moira Kelly—rip-roaring comedy and uplifting messages of courage, loyalty and hope make this a timeless tale for all ages. Produced by Don Hahn and directed by Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff from a script by Irene Mecchi, Jonathan Roberts and Linda Woolverton.

Also I’m so lucky to have been forwarded some amazing rare concept art from the film to share with you that you can see in the pics above and in the slide show below!

Also don’t forget you get a free pair of limited edition Simba-sized 3D glasses only at Real D theaters when you watch the Lion King 3D this Friday, September 16th!

“The Lion King” is rated G by the MPAA.

I can’t wait for my family to see it on the Big Screen for the first time! I saw it when I was younger and it’s so great for them to see it on the screen as well.
