Sneak Peek of 'The Lion King 3D' Roars Into Select Theaters Before 'Cars 2'

Pop quiz: What do Matthew Broderick, James Earl Jones, Owen Wilson and Larry the Cable Guy have in common?

They're all part of the Disney family—as actors who have voiced key roles in animated summer flicks.

You'll remember Broderick (as Simba) and Jones (as Mufasa) from 1994's smash hit "The Lion King," a film that was nominated for a whopping four Oscars and took home two, including Best Original Score and Best Original Song.

Wilson and Larry the Cable Guy, meanwhile, come to us from the action-packed "Cars 2 3D," the highly anticipated sequel that follows star racecar Lightning McQueen and his pal Mater.

Now these two movies come together, because audiences will see the first four minutes of "The Lion King" in 3D (they didn't have that back in the '90s when it was made) in select theaters before "Cars 2 3D" begins.

James Reviews Nathan Greno and Byron Howard’s Tangled [Blu-Ray Review]

“You broke my smolder.”

When Disney announced they were making an animated film about the Brothers Grimm story Rapunzel

, I know I wasn’t one to be that excited about that idea. The story seemed very one note: A girl with long hair is locked up in a tower by an evil enchantress and it will take a prince to save her. Not much adventure and excitement when you mention that little synopsis.

But what the animation studio did instead was take the basic story of a girl named Rapunzel (Mandy Moore), taken from her parents who are king and queen of the kingdom by Gothel (Donna Murphy), who uses Rapunzel’s hair to keep from aging. When a rogue named Flynn (Zachary Levi) is on the run from the law after stealing the princess’ crown from the castle and stumbles upon the tower, he and Rapunzel are intertwined on

Disney Sees the Future In 3-D

Last month, Disney gave audiences the chance to fall down the rabbit hole in 3-D from the comfort of their own homes with their “Alice in Wonderland” Blu-ray 3-D release.

Apparently they were happy with the results – the studio announced in a press release today that they are readying at least 15 of their films for in-home viewing on Blu- ray 3-D in 2011.

The obvious titles are the Mouse House’s recent theatrical 3-D releases “Tangled” and “Tron: Legacy.” But what’s most interesting here is the inclusion of some of their 2-D animated classics that are getting their very first 3-D upgrade.

By the end of this year, we’ll get to revisit the Pride Lands and join Simba as he reclaims his rightful place in The Circle of Life, as well as witness Belle discover Something There That Wasn’t There Before with her Beast – all in glorious 1080p
