The Lion King 3D Adventure Movie Disney, Disney is re-releasing The Lion King this weekend, where it's slated to gross $15 million or more this weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter's box office preview. It should win the No. 1 spot away from the three new films debuting.

What are critics saying about the 3D conversion of the 1994 animated classic, which is tied to the Oct. 4 release of the Diamond Blu-Ray edition of the film?

STORY: 'The Lion King' Poised to Win Weekend Box Office

"The 3-D doesn’t add much — only depth — to this film, which won a couple of Oscars upon its release. A wildebeest or hyena almost falls into your lap here and there," writes Roger Moore in the Orlando Sentinel.

Still, Moore is a fan of Lion King's return to theaters for the nostalgia factor.

"Once upon a time, pre-video, Disney reissued its classics to theaters for short runs so that a new generation could experience them the way they were meant to be seen. That makes this Lion King revival part of a grand tradition, 3-D or not," he writes.
"Some who were just children 17 years ago have the chance to make this the first Disney film their kids see in a theater. Lucky them."
