First non-3D released movie to be released in 3D? Wonder if they rendered it any good, then again, it's CGI so it should be fine.

It was a 3D movie although only in IMAX cinemas. The rest had to make do with a 2D version.

I wonder how a 2D movie looks in 3D? This, I gotta see.

J. Severe: Probably like a native 3D movie, because it's computer generated. If you really want to know how a 2D movie looks in 3D, any live-action films from this year which weren't Avatar should fulfill that request.

Never saw Open Season, but hey, more 3D movies can only bode well for the format. Even if it is just a tiny bit of well-boding.

I saw it in 3D in IMAX. But even if it hadn't been shown in 3D theatrically it would be "real" 3D.

ALL CGI movies can be converted to real 3D easily because they are constructed in a 3D environment. All they do is add a second virtual camera next to the original one and viola. That's how a 3D version of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 was created.

All CG movies are natively 3D by there very nature because they are rendered from 3D computer files. The debate on native 3D or convered 3D is only relevent for live action movies.

Also Open Season was released in IMAX 3D during its initial run

Yup. Day one buy for me. Great family flick...previews on Monster House and Cloudy look amazing. I saw this in IMAX 3D back during it's original theatrical run. Was a whole lot of fun! (And to answer the posters above, it was originally made and shown in 3D, but only in select IMAX theaters.)

I knew this was coming. I feel glad to have held off on buying this. Now if only they could release Surf's Up as well.

Surf's Up could be a tricky release for 3D, because it was shot using motion captured handheld cameras, meaning the movements of the handheld camera were done in person, and translated to the CGI camera, but none of the character animation is mo-capped.

So it might be difficult for them to setup the 2nd camera, in order to present the 3D depth.

P.S. Surfs Up was not released in any 3D format whatsoever.
