Beauty and the Beast 3D trailer

When Disney re-released THE LION KING in 3D, I was wary because it didn't need to be converted to the new medium to be a good movie. It's a timeless classic that I would have preferred to see on the big screen in 2D, in bright vibrant color. Luckily, there were a few theaters that did that! I'm hoping BEAUTY AND THE BEAST will have the same sort of release in 2012.

It's one of my favorite Disney films and I am glad that it's getting reintroduced to a new generation, even if it means a not entirely necessary post-conversion to 3D. Catch the trailer after the break.
