"The Lion King" is a hit on its opening day the second time around, this time in 3D. It is also a popular musical.

In 1994 “The Lion King was released for the first time as an animated feature film which was produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation, but on Friday in a limited release of a 3D version, the film grossed over $8 million for the one day, and based on that could be set to bring in over $20 million during the opening weekend.

The 2D version of the musical “The Lion King” was one of the highest grossing hand drawn animation films in the United States, producing over $783 million world wide during its 1994 release. It has been adapted for the stage too and has been hugely successfully there as well.

With the 3D release, it seems that young and old are flocking to see the new version, with the younger people attending for the first time, while older viewers are reliving their youth. As a film that is suitable for all ages, this is not surprising. It is a musical story about a young lion growing up in Africa

On 4 October, the Diamond Edition of The Lion King will be released in high definition Blu-ray, as well as on Blu-ray 3D. It should be noted that the 3D film is released for two weeks starting on 16 September to generate interest in the new edition.
