Kids Get Simba-Themed 3D Glasses When They See "The Lion King 3D"

Posted on Thursday, September 1st, 2011 6:29 PM by Scott Jentsch

Before its release on Blu-ray on October 4, 2011, Disney's The Lion King is coming back to theaters in three dimensions with the release of The Lion King 3D on September 16, 2011. To celebrate the release, kids will get Simba-themed RealD 3D glasses that they can keep after the movie.

The glasses are designed to fit children 8 years of age and younger, and will be available until supplies last, so there's a very good chance that they will not be available by the end of the two-week engagement.

“‘The Lion King’ is an animated classic that a new generation will be able to experience like never before when it’s shown in theatres for the first time in fully immersive RealD 3D,” said Joseph Peixoto, President, Worldwide Cinema at RealD. “I can’t think of a better way for kids to get in on the fun than with their own pair of Simba-themed RealD 3D glasses that they can take home as a reminder of Disney’s epic story about the cub that would be king.”

If you're interested in this offer, check out the opening-day Showtimes page for the movie and make your plans today!

If you're not going to make it to the theaters to see the movie, check out the links below for information about the Blu-ray releases coming October 4th:

If you have the gear at home, you can watch the movie in 3D from the comfort of your own chair but there aren't any cool themed glasses in either of the 3D packs. For those of us that would rather see the movie the way it was originally created and presented, the 2D version is available in each of the above packages.
