Watch: First Trailer for Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast' 3D Re-Release
After the box office success of the theatrical re-release The Lion King in 3D earlier this year, it was no surprise to learn that Disney was ready with an onslaught of more theatrical re-releases of Disney's films in 3D. Just recently we debuted the first poster for Beauty and the Beast, the next film headed to the third dimension, and now Disney has released the first trailer to entice audiences back into the theaters for the tale as old as time all over again. There was a trailer back in 2010 when an earlier re-release was planned, but this new trailer is longer, and gets me excited to see the film in theaters all over again. Watch below!
Here's the new trailer for Disney's Beauty and the Beast in 3D re-release, courtesy of Yahoo:
Beauty and the Beast's original team of filmmakers, including producer Don Hahn (also of Waking Sleeping Beauty) and co-directors Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale, returned to oversee the 3D conversion. "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 3D experience for existing and new fans of the film." Beauty and the Beast was originally released in 1991 and has made over $171 million since then. Disney will finally release this in theaters in 3D starting January 13th early next year, to be followed by Finding Nemo in 3D next September. Seeing this in theaters?
