Just three years after its first foray into Big Movies (with the re-release of Fantasia on Jan. 1, 2000), Disney has quickly established itself as one of the leading Giant Screen production and distribution companies -- having released four films in that span (3 animated), and made announcements for several more over the next few years. (For a complete list, see their distributor page.) As the fourth animated feature the company has re-formatted for 70mm Big Movie theaters, THE LION KING just might become the most successful to date -- considering that it's the top-grossing animated film of all time, the best-selling video in home entertainment history, and a popular Broadway show to boot. Click on the links below to read more about the production, watch previews and find a Big Movie theater near you showing THE LION KING, which opens in some 100 venues across North America on Christmas Day (plus several others in Europe on December 20th).
