According to the Associated Press, The Lion King 3D brought in $22.1 million this weekend. It has now generated more than $61.7 million since being re-released in 3D last weekend.

The original run of The Lion King brought in $800 million between it’s original run and 2002 re-release.  David Hollis, Disney’s head of distribution has said that due to the success of this release, it will remain on the big screen longer than the originally planned 2 week run.

    Way to go Lion King! I hope Disney continues to re-release movies in theaters. It was wonderful to this and Toy Story 1&2 on the big screen again 🙂

    I usually do not leave many comments, but i did a few searching and wound up here Simba Remains King of Box Office with Lion King 3D | DAPs Magic Disney News. And I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Is it just me or does it look like some of these responses appear like left by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional social sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post.
