For months now, I've been wondering what the next Disney movie is going to be, after Winnie the Pooh is released this summer. Disney has not said much of anything on the subject, which I find kind of odd. After all, Pixar has been very open about what projects they're working on; since 2009, we've known that their next three projects were Toy Story 3, Cars 2 and Monsters Inc. 2. They said something about another project called Bear and the Arrow, I think, which is set in Scotland, but the news outlets decided to focus on the three sequels instead.
So, Pixar is pretty forthcoming when it comes to what animated movies they're making, but Disney is playing things close to the vest. I did some sleuting, however, and I was able to figure out what Disney's next project is.
Brace yourselves. It's a pretty bad "we care more about money than integrity" ploy.
Their next movie is The Lion King, now in 3D.
...Ugh. On the official "List of Movies That Don't Need to Remade in 3D", which is every single movie ever made, The Lion King is pretty high up there. There is nothing about the movie which demands the use of fake 3D.
