Ugh. Yes, it was a great movie. But really, weren't remakes bad enough? Now we're just re-rendering from 2D to 3D? Don't they have writers?

I think when the article said "3D" they meant stereoscopic projection. So, they are still talking about the original hand-drawn film, just adapted to be projected in another format. I don't know if adapting it to be stereoscopic will be everyone's cup of tea, but at least it'll get more people into theaters to see that classic movie in a restored big-screen projection.

Yes, same movie. Only now it's been run through a process where all the elements get pushed into a "multi plane" environment. Nightmare Before Xmas went through the same thing and it looked really cool. I've seen a test shot of Beauty & The Beast "3D" and it's awesome. It's a great way to see an amazing film back in theaters in a fresh way. God, I sound like a producer :) Anyway, it's cool.

It'll be a fun one to get the treatment.

Beauty and the Beast was just a zenith for that phase of Disney with such a talented AND eager group of people on a singlularly focused project.

If I'm not wrong in thinking, it was their first film done completely in their digital ink and paint system (I think Little Mermaid and The Great Mouse Detective were mixes) so it should setup easy-ish enough to get great results.

Ah, my bad. That sounds much better.
