Question How Did You Like The Lion King in 3D?!

So, what are your thoughts on The Lion King in 3D? Yes, it just came out today, but I know you went and saw it! How was it???

It was awesome! I was afraid I would be disappointed, but it was great. The opening scene is amazing!

It was great, but how could it not be? No matter how many times I've seen it, I still get chills during the first scene.

We're going Sunday, but seeing the 2D. Not a fan of 3D.

Me too! Big screen, small screen, doesn't matter.

I'll admit, I teared up a bit during the movie. I was so happy I was able to take my daughter to see it in the theatre. That movie was just so well done, it's incredible. I'm not sure if Disney has enough movie magic left to outdo it.

I agree with Hades--3d dosen't seem worth all the hype--Lion King is just fine in the original formats!!

We saw it yesterday..Loved it in 3D.. (I only wish that they had a little more of things popping out in 3D.) I am spoiled from seeing Philharmagic so many times and LOVE the Lion King scenes... Regardless, You can never go wrong seeing Lion King on any screen..

Seeing it live on Broadway is amazing too.

The story has such a powerful message when the King tells his slacker son, "You are more than you have become."

As far as the 3D thing, I just wish they would do it without the glasses. For whatever reason, my eyebrawls just don't focus well unless I turn the 3D glasses somewhut skewed sideways. Which would look like a dork-fest if the theatre lights were on. Son-in-law has problems too.

And I suspishun this thread is going to be mooved to the Disney moovies section.

This is what I meant by I thought I would be disappointed, but this 3d is so different than the cheesy gimmicky 3D of other movies I'd seen. The opening scene was so amazing I teared up. When the flamingos fly over, you will be awestruck. Just see it in 3D. My husband was amazing by the little things like rain and mist and smoke. I actually appreciated the lack of "pop out" 3D, instead it was more depth and layers.

We are taking our 2 boys (3 & 7) tomorrow. Can't wait! Saw "TLK" in the theater way back in 1994. Took my little niece then...she's 22 now!

I loved it. The movies aren't meant to pop out at you like attractions in the parks it is meant to add depth and make you feel more immersed.
