Check This Out: Disney's Official 'Beauty and the Beast' in 3D Poster
Be our guest… in 3D! Disney has released an official poster via Yahoo to tease the 3D re-release of Beauty and the Beast, which it looks like will finally happen on January 13th next year. We've been hearing about this 2D-animation-converted-to-3D re-release for a few years now, I previewed footage way back in 2009, but The Lion King got the actual 3D release first, now it's finally time for Belle and the Beast to make their triumphant return to the big screen. Beauty and the Beast was directed by Gary Trousdale & Kirk Wise and won two music Oscars and was even nominated for Best Picture. Take a look! It's a tale as old as time…
This new poster is much more conventional compared to the original artistic version from the 1991 release.
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. Which do you like more?

I'm really looking forward to this. It's not gonna be my first time seeing Beauty and the Beast in Theaters, it's actually gonna be my second time. I went and saw the film Sing Along Event back in October 2, 2010. And I'll be more happy to see it on the big screen again. I went and saw The Lion King 3D 2 months back and it was extremely incredible. After all, both Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King are my all-time favorite Disney Classics.

Y'know I recently watched a good 30 minutes of B&tB on TV—it was a while since I saw it—and man....the animation, characters, layout and design just blows on this movie. The characters are as loose and formulaic as they come, the lip sync was terrible, the appeal it once had is completely lost today in terms of style, animation, character design and various other elements that just made me cringe. There is absolutely no way I would consider watching this in 3D, let alone ever again.
