On October 4th, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment releases THE LION KING: Diamond Edition on Blu-ray 3D & Blu-ray Hi-Def! Journey back to Pride Rock and experience the stunning picture & sound enhanced classic. Delve deeper behind-the-scenes with new bonus material including hilarious animated bloopers and Disney’s Second Screen application!
I still remember how we would watch The Lion King at school on inclement weather days. I remember how we would ask the duties to sit on the cafeteria floor and we would all be mesmerized by Simba and his pals. The Lion King has always been one of my favorite movies and I could not wait for Sarah to see it for the first time!
“‘The Lion King’ is the best-selling home entertainment release of all time—and this is ‘The Lion King’ like never before,” said Bob Chapek, president of distribution, The Walt Disney Studios. “The all-new 3D format immerses viewers in the epic settings and puts them face-to-face with these beloved characters. We’re showcasing one of the all-time favorite Disney movies in theaters and making it available in Blu-ray hi-def and in Blu-ray 3D—it’s the must-see, must-own title for everyone.”
Nearly a decade since “The Lion King” last appeared on the big screen, the upcoming theatrical release invites new generations into the “Circle of Life.” The two-week, 3D-only presentation is a planned wide domestic release—the biggest since the film’s 1994 debut—and the film’s first-ever 3D release.
The Blu-ray debut marks the first time “The Lion King” has been available in any form since 2004. Featuring pristine high definition picture and sound, the Blu-ray creates an incredible at-home experience with a host of picture and sound enhancements, interactive features and bonus content, including a new set of hilarious animated bloopers.
Hubby and I loved that when you paused the movie it showed you exactly where you were in the movie!
