Hime-chan and I, being the children that we are, went to go see The Lion King in 3D in theaters Thursday, September 29th. We both saw it the first time it was in theaters in ’95, and heaven be damned if we weren’t going to see it the second time. Thankfully they edited out the Morning report song that they had taken from the Broadway play and had put into the DVD version of the movie that came out a few years ago. It was a late night show so there weren’t many people there, but that didn’t hinder our excitement. You would have thought we were going to a Vamps concert the way we where fangirling.
Unfortunately, because the movie was originally made to be 2 dimensional, there wasn’t much that really popped out of the screen while in 3D. Although when Zazu was flying in at the start of the movie I did reach out and try to grab his tail feathers. Oh, and Scar leaping towards Simba with the fire behind him towards the end of the movie. That was amazing. I wish I could have screen shot that moment to save forever. Sadly, real life doesn’t work like a computer so that won’t work, but I think I might pull up that image from the DVD and put it as my background on my desktop…that’s a possibility. ^_^
Also, just the other day, I made sure to pick up my copy to The Lion King Diamond edition at Toys R Us (where I got a free holographic poster!). Sure, I have the VHS, and yes I bought the DVD a few years ago, but hello, Diamond edition. Also, the deleted scenes are hilarious! My favorite being “Scar’s Madness” when he hit’s on Nala and sings the reprise to Be Prepared. Which, is also in the Broadway play apparently. I really need to go see the Broadway play.
