That’s right. The Lion King is being re-released to the theaters on September 16th 2011 in Disney 3D, but only for 2 weeks. So get there as soon as you can, or you’ll miss it.
Disney is releasing The Lion King to Blu-Ray and DVD on October 4th 2011 in 2 packs, 4 packs and an 8 disc set with all 3 Lion King films.
The Lion King was first released June 15th 1994 to theaters and has grossed $783,841,776 (that's 3/4 of a billion dollars) since then.
As of this year it is the 6th highest grossing animated film of all time. It was in first place until 2004 when Disney/Pixar released Finding Nemo. It has slowly been bumped further down the line ever since. The Lion King is currently in 35th place as the highest grossing film of all time.
After the release of The Lion King, Disney released 2 other movies and a TV series.
Timon & Pumba (1995-1999)
The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride (1998)
The Lion King 1 ½ (2004)
