The Lion King 3D review

THE SWOOPING MAJESTY OF THAT epic intro and the wildebeest stampede that sends Simba’s dad to join Bambi’s mom are the main reasons why this 1994 fave is the Disney ’toon most deserving of a 3D overhaul. Yet there are other scenes that also benefit from the stereoscopic treatment – Scar’s ‘Be Prepared’ number with its goosestepping hyenas, or the heart-tugging moment when Mufasa returns to hammer home how much this double Oscar-winner owes to Hamlet. Well worth another look, though it’s a pity they’re saving the newly made bloopers for the upcoming Blu-ray.
