Disney has announced that they will produce theatrical releases of 4 more animated classics in 3D. The movies will be The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monsters Inc., and Finding Nemo.
The four films will unspool over the next two years, beginning in January with “Beauty and the Beast,” the 1991 hit that became the first animated film to be nominated for an Oscar for best picture. “Finding Nemo,” first released in 2003 and the fourth-highest-grossing animated movie of all time, will follow in 3-D in September 2012. “Monsters Inc.” (2001) will premiere in 3-D in January 2013, six months ahead of its own prequel, “Monsters University,” a new Pixar film due in June of that year. Finally, “The Little Mermaid” will debut in September 2013.More than just seeing these movies in 3D, it is the opportunity for kids, especially those who missed them the first time around, to see these in movie theaters in its full glory.
