TNS At The Lion King 3D Premiere

After its release in 1994 the Lion King gets a 3D makeover like no other, and one that it truly deserves. Stars such as Myleene Klass, Britain’s Got Talent star Ronan Parke and SB.TV founder Jamal Edwards were at the London IMAX premiere to watch Simba and his desert friends arrive in 3D for the first time. The film has already taken over $30m in America and Disney say it is one of the most eagerly awaited films to come back to cinema. Many children in attendance had never seen The Lion King before but they were fully involved with the life-size characters of Timon and Rafiki. But by re-releasing the magical tale in 3D, Disney hope they will reach out to a new generation of fans. “It’s wonderful it is being brought to a new generation and viewed in a way that they understand as well The Lion King is made for the 3D screen,” said Myleene Klass. “Ava (her daughter) actually said to me ‘so if its 3D does it mean I can touch the lions?’ I thought that was really nice and she has that understanding of it, where we would have been alright with the puppets.”
