Turns out that Disney loves the fishes because they’re going to be in 3D. Disney has announced that Pixar’s animated classic Finding Nemo will hit theaters this Fall for a limited, three-dimensional run. This isn’t the first time Disney has re-released 2D Pixar films in 3D. In the lead-up to Toy Story 3, the studio released Toy Storyand Toy Story 2 in a 3D double feature.
Finding Nemo 3D follows in the footsteps of Disney’s first 3D successes including The Lion King which earned $30 million when it was re-released in September and Beauty and the Beast which hit theaters on Jan. 13.
The studio is hoping that Finding Nemo 3D will have similar success. That shouldn’t be a problem given that a film about an animated clownfish trying to find his son broke some impressive records. Finding Nemo won the 2003 Oscar for best animated feature, at release it was the highest grossing G-rated movie ever, and was named one of the 10 greatest animated films by the American Film Institute in 2008.
Disney is also eyeing re-releases of The Little Mermaid and Monsters Inc. in 3D.
Finding Nemo 3D will have to deal with some interesting competition. Disney isn’t the only studio getting into the 3D re-release race. Fox is re-releasing Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in February. This April, Paramount is helping Fox put out a 3D version of James Cameron’s Titanic which was the highest grossing film of all time until it was beat by the 3D film Avatar, which Cameron also directed.
