I may not be the biggest fan of 3D but I can’t deny technology has improved and anyone 10 or even a few years ago would see television capable of 3D Technology probably would have laughed at you. Nowdays every second film released is 3D so it was no surprise when classic films like The Lion King have been re-released again now in 3D and to celebrate the films release on DVD and Blu Ray Disney Home Entertainment have sent us this exclusive clip. Called ‘Expectations’ this clip some of the key artists describe the expectations and subsequent pride they had for The Lion King.
