The true King by Mistrel-Fox The true King by Mistrel-Fox
Kind of a tribute to The Lion King 3D which finally was released in Russian cinemas on March 22. Yeah, in Soviet Russia you have to wait for half a year to get something from abroad. I'm kidding, of course, I just really don't know why they delayed with it for so long.

About impressions: AWESOME! *__* It was so unusual and great to see a classically animated movie in 3D. Characters looked so natural, they seemed to extend beyond the screen; the same with backgrounds. An amazing feeling =)

For some reason, during the scene of Mufasa's death, all my friends were sitting with wet eyes, and only I didn't drop a single tear. Seems I've developed immunity xD

'kay, the end of ranting. Maybe I'll go for TLK once more on the next week. Oh, and I can't wait for Brave - the trailer was amazing! :eager:

It's a beautiful pictures! just in tLK style.
Dignity, that's what Simba rediates here ;)

I loved the 3D, too. Although some small kiddies next to me thought that the movie effect were no "real 3D". I was pretty pissed off about them making my favourite film bad AND talking loudly during the whole movie! On my otherside there sat an old couple (they were about 60-70) and they were so cute! It really proved that Disney is for all: Young and old. :heart:

Yeah, it irritates me, too, that kids nowadays are totally obsessed with the whole 3D thing. :C Traditonal animation is dying, 'cause kids want a spectacle, a realistic picture, more experience - things that traditional animation isn't able to provide, or not at such a level as 3D. I'm not against 3D movies themselves - it all started with Pixar, and their movies are true masterpieces. But I just want 2D animation to be as popular as 3D is. Well, it's good that Disney continues their tradition to rerelease 2D masterpieces converted in 3D =) Classic never gets old. :heart: WANNA MULAN IN 3DDDD *0*

Aww, that's really sweet. :aww: Unfortunately, people from the old generation in my country (Russia) don't accept American cinema, 'cause they STILL think all coming from the West is bad (damn that stupid Soviet ideology and the Iron Curtain >.<). I agree that Disney movies (at least, classic) are for all ages <3 Lol, when me and my three friends (we are 18-20 years old) came to the beginning of the movie, many mommies in the cinema hall were looking at us as if we were retarded: they think that "cartoons" are only for little children! XD (shall I say "animation movies", but for adult people it amounts to the same thing, pfft). It's a pity that they can't see all the beauty and soul of Disney movies. Well, at least the new generation is more open and understanding to such things. =)

You're welcome.

And I'm really sorry for taking so long (2 weeks :o) to reply to your comment :blush:

Well what else is there left for me but to agree? I think cartoons or animations are more effective in 2D. If they are rendered with a 3D program anyways that's something different. Then it does look a lot better in 3D (e.g. UP! - I bet it would have been cool to see it in 3D; or Tangled).

That's sad. But I hope (and I believe) that the thinking will change and we will all be more open for other cultures in the future.
Thehe that's another problem. And yes, I was a little afraid I would get the same looks when I ordered my ticket (I'm in that age-range you mentioned, too). It was okay, though. I did get some strange glances but it was fine. Especially since the elderly couple sat next to me then. :)

Even though I was 18 when I watched this movie in 3D, I couldn't help but smile as the movie brought so much nostalgia, even my mom went with me to see the movie. I was also surprised to see some younger kids to see and watch the movie, but I was happy as well since they get to see one of the best Disney's movie on the big screen and in 3D.

I also love how you captured Simba so perfectly, a true king he is <3

Awesome!! and I totally agree about the movie's epicness in HD 3D, I wish they still did hand-drawn animation as the dominant style. *sigh* However after 17 years of watching the movie, I still cry at Mufasa's death scene

Yeah, I wish so too... 2D animation is dying out now =( On the other hand, I really love Pixar animated movies, even though it was Pixar who marked the beginning of 3D-animation, and has caused hand-drawn animation to leave the stage. I wish 2D and 3D movies were made in equal amounts T_T

I know...I'm hoping to reach a peak point in my life where I find myself convincing Disney to take a chance with a story I want produced under their name in 2D animation. It's marked on my bucket list, and I know I won't give up trying, even if they say no, until the day I die to at least get some big producer to use the story
