There's word out there Disney-Pixar will be 3-D-izing their older films and rereleasing them to theaters. "The Lion King" was so adapted and rereleased in Fall 2011 and made some money!
January 13, 2012 it will be "Beauty and the Beast" getting the 3-d rerelease treatment.
The one after that will be Pixar's "Finding Nemo", coming to theaters in 3-D style "for a limited engagement" in September 2012.
In 3-D I bet "Finding Nemo" would look very cool, like actually being in an aquarium or ocean with the characters. Last fall the rerelease in 3-D of "The Lion King" actually was a very very lucrative endeavor for Disney, made a LOT of money. That's probably what's going on..... Excellent hit movie audiences are already familiar with, give it the 3-D treatment to make it different, but it's still the same great movie. Rake in the money!
It was last in theaters in 2003, in September 2012 that will be 9+ years ago.
I don't know an exact release date, folks, but if you're interested pencil in "Finding Nemo in 3-D September 2012" on your new 2012 calendars and just keep a weather eye out for it when the time comes. Probably Google-able, the date.
