UPDATE: Disney's Prince of Persia NOT Coming in Digital 3D
Disney just keeps the hits coming out of D23. Casting bits and project announcements galore have filled our pages, but now a project that is already in post-production gets some big news. Disney's big upcoming video game adaptation Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time will be given a full fledged 3-D release. This was first brought to the attention of the folks at ComingSoon when a poster for Prince of Persia appeared on a display highlighting all the 3-D Disney release coming up. This was confirmed by on-site Disney reps, but it's important to note that since the film was not shot in 3-D, this will be done entirely in post-production.
After the huge box office success that Disney's G-Force had with the added bonus of screening in 3-D (the Bruckheimer production has score $169 million worldwide to date) I'm sure that Disney is ready to shove just about everything into the third dimension. Studios should be careful moving forward though, because I can see people getting bored with 3-D if everything under the sun will be flying at our faces in theaters. 3D needs to add something to the moviegoing experience and not just be a schtick that we'll get sick of soon. Especially when most people already get tired of wearing glasses for 90 minutes. What do you guys think?
UPDATE: We just received an e-mail from a Disney representative who says the Prince of Persia is NOT going to be released as a 3-D feature. It seems strange that the poster image was included on another poster with all the other Disney 3-D releases though. We're trying to find out if there's anymore to this story, so we'll keep you posted as it develops!
