it's close to becoming the number-three animated movie of all time! Maybe the strategy in Hollywood should be not rebootings -- but simple re-releases (3-D where applicable)?
In Lion King's case, it boils down to families wanting to take their kids to excellent movies that they'll remember the rest of their lives. Sure, I'm champing at the bit to see Moneyball -- but my 3-year-old nephew isn't. And while the new family flick Dolphin Tale is a solid pick for the kid demographic, how many of these sorts of movies do they make anymore for children?
The new top ten Animated Movies Of All Time list at the moment is as follows:
1. Toy Story 3
2. Shrek 2
3. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
4. Finding Nemo
5. The Lion King
6. Shrek the 3rd
7. Shrek Forever After
9. Kung-Fu Panda
10. Ice Age: The Meltdown
Again, I have to wonder with initiatives to re-release classic films like Lion King, Titanic, and Ghostbusters, if the new Hollywood strategy -- especially in a recession -- isn't to just stick with the classics, they same way they are focusing more on public domain properties rather than licensed ones.
