Is anyone that already bought the 2D release planning on upgrading their copy to 3D? I wonder if Disney will offer any kind of incentive to get us to double dip so quickly, as it will only be a year since the original release when this comes out in October.

I'm 50/50 on this. I'm interested to see what it looks like - but I hate that it's double dipping quite so quickly.

I sold my origional blu ray of this, and have pre ordered this new 3d version.
I don't have a 3d tv, but those cool 3d slip covers are almost worth $5-$10 alone to me.
They are awsome !
Whoever thought of the 3d slip covers was a genious, because that is what is getting me to upgdrage my blus to the 3d versions, even without the 3d hardware !

I also sold my 2D copy to make way for the 3D version. I'm hoping it will be worth the extra money, but I'm a sucker for the movie regardless.

I LOVE Disney and this movie is a top ten for sure almost top five in the Disney catalog for me. But i just bought the regular blu and i ain't double dipping so quick and im not buying a new receiver or oppo or better yet a Tv. I got the best one ever IMHO a Pioneer Elite so I'm not buying into the whole 3D thing not even with Disney. As vanscottie said 3D can suck it.

Snore. 3D = Pointless.

I am more than impressed by my 2D version. Even if I had a 3D setup, I wouldn't DD on this.

Absolutely nothing special here to me. 3D on a movie made 20 years ago will make little difference. Will NOT double dip on this.

Wasn't Beauty and the Beast completely done on the computer? If that's the case, couldn't they just render it twice (once per eye) and make it a true 3D instead of a conversion?

I didn't buy the first one but even without a 3DTV I'm burning out on 3D. I like some films in it, but Pirates was hit and miss. Maybe that's just cause of a lot of night scenes or dense jungle and closeups. IDK.

I want to see this in theaters

Ha, glad I preordered it when I did. $27 on Amazon, and they say they'll have it to me on release day. And hey, if the Blu-ray.com review isn't that good, I'll just cancel the order before it ships. This site is usually pretty good about reviewing major releases a few days to a few weeks before they hit shelves.

laie-techie:
Beauty and the Beast wasn't donde entirely on computers (like for example Toy Story). Some scenes like the ballroom dance were done on computer but the rest of the film is traditional hand-drawn animation.

you people who are misinformed about there not being any difference because its a 20 year old movie or a conversion are missing out. the movie looks beautiful in 3D just do a google search and youll come across the reviews from people who have seen it around the world durring its theatrical release in several markets last year and this year.

zoodermin B&B was animated with the CAPS animation system and plays a large part in why they were able to make such a spectacular 3D transfer of this and Lion King 3D. I can also say first hand that the scenes ive seen of Tarzan screened in 3D by reel D a few years ago also looked amazing. I think its safe to assume Tarzan will be the next animated disney movie to see a3D blu release after Lion King and B&B.

I just plan on taking the 3D disc and sticking it in my Iron Pack case (replacing the DVD disc in it) and selling or trading off the other discs.

+1 to what backgroundactorman said. It's easy to write off poorly done conversions. However, Beast and Lion King are anything but rush jobs, and are converted from caps animation files which maintain layers of information, like a photoshop file. These layers serve to break out the original depth of each foreground and background object. Then the flat pieces of art were re-molded to have more depth. It's really impressive. There are several articles on how the process was accomplished if you search hard enough. Both films are going to be really impressive....much more so than Nightmare IMO. Having seen many of the clips that backgroudactorman was referring to, Disney could convert any Title stored in Caps (any title from Rescuers Down Under and on)...the results are awesome, and worth every penny to upgrade in my opinion. Plus they added a digital copy for Beast and Lion King, plus a lenticular slipcover...and after the coupon it'll end up costing about $16.99 on release day at Best Buy, just like Tangled and Tron Legacy did... These Disney releases are an amazing value.

cathexist - it was the first animated movie to be nominated for best picture. I think since then, there have been others... Toy Story 3, UP... any others?

im not into the 3d thing right now. so no, i wont be upgrading. even if i had a 3d tv, i cant help but wondering if i would upgrade seeing how this movie was made with 2d in mind not 3d. i watched 3d movies in 2d (resident evil afterlife for example) and the obvious made for 3d scenes can get annoying in 2d. i can see upgrading made for 3d movies but not made for 2d. but as i said, im not into the 3d thing right now so it doesnt matter

Could we please stop with the 3D hate? I am sick and tired of all of this crap. People coming into a thread just to say," 3D sucks".

People that dont have any interest in 3D doesnt have to buy this re-release. Since you already have the 2D version from last year. Why waste your time, saying" 3D sucks, I am not buying this crap."?

Personally I am looking forward to buying this re-release. Cant wait to watch it in 3D.

if you have the 2D version and plan to upgrade to 3D it would probably be a good idea to save the proof of purchase tab... yesterday i receive my $10 check from disney from alice in wonderlad 3D. I'm hoping they do the same thing for this one...
