If it's crap ... We'll tell you
As if there were any doubt this was going to happen after their 3D re-release of 'The Lion King' netted the studio over $80 million dollars worldwide and was #1 at the box office, Walt Disney Studios has officially announced that they plan to re-release a brand new batch of their classic films into theaters in 3D. The first of these films, 1991's 'Beauty and the Beast', will arrive back in theaters on January 13th, 2012. Disney already has a 3D-retrofitted version of the film completed, as it was originally meant to take 'The Lion Kings' spot as the premiere re-release (it was instead moved to a limited engagement in L.A. theaters while 'The Lion King' went national).
Following shortly after: Pixar's 'Finding Nemo' on September 14th, 'Monsters, Inc.' on January 21st, 2013, and finally - in a weird bit of possible counterprogramming - 'The Little Mermaid' on June 21st, 2013. There is a chance that Disney may move 'The Little Mermaid', as June 21st is also the date that their 3D-animated prequel 'Monsters University' is scheduled to premiere, and it's unlikely that Disney would open up their beloved classic in direct competition against another of their lucrative film franchises. Walt Disney Studios president Alan Bergman said in a statement today, "Great stories and great characters are timeless, and at Disney we're fortunate to have a treasure trove of both".
