Beauty and the Beast is probably one of the best animated films ever made, and as we've heard over the last couple of years, the movie is currently going through the 3D conversion process for a theatrical re-release sometime in 2011. I haven't seen any footage from the film in 3D, but I've heard it actually looks really good. It was also revealed recently that Disney was converting The Lion King for a 3D re-release as well. Unfortunately this teaser trailer isn't in 3D, but you can check it out below. What do you think about Disney converting their films into 3D?
The film’s original producers Don Hahn and directors Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale used the film’s original computer files to re-render the film in 3D, a process that took an estimated 10 months. “By going back to the original animation files, which have been carefully archived for 17 years, and using the separate background, effects and character animation elements, we’re able to come up with a fun and unique 3-D experience for existing and new fans of the film,” Producer Don Hahn has said.
