Toon Zone Talkback - PR: "Finding Nemo" 3D in Theaters September 14, 2012, on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D on December 4, 2012
This is the talkback thread for PR: "Finding Nemo" 3D in Theaters September 14, 2012, on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D on December 4, 2012.
That's odd. I thought for certain they would re-render Monsters Inc. in 3-D first, seeing as the sequel comes out next year.
But Finding Nemo is going to look much better in an extra dimension, so...fine by me, even if it makes less business sense.

THIS WEEK: When you think about it, TV shows with cult fanbases have actually returned more times than they haven't. The results have been mixed, but it's a thing, and it totally happens! Join us as we examine many recent examples in..."YOU CAME BACK!"
Was Finding Nemo really originally animated in 3D like Lasseter said?
I think you inadvertently answered your own question. If one is coming, I'd expect to see a 3-D re-release of Monsters Inc. next year as part of the run-up to the prequel movie, along with a 3-D Blu-ray re-release at or close to the theatrical or home video release of Monsters University. Also, Monsters Inc was released on Blu-ray relatively recently and Finding Nemo hasn't been released on Blu-ray at all yet.

Well, it depends on what you mean by "animated in 3D." Technically, all CGI films are in 3D, since the computers are rendering 3D shapes in a virtual space, with a virtual camera capturing the action to turn it into a film. Doing actual 3D versions of those movies requires adding a second virtual camera offset from the first one to create the second image for the 3D effect. This isn't a trivial task, of course, but it's certainly much easier than attempting to re-render hand-drawn or stop-motion animated films in 3D. So all of Pixar's films were originally animated in 3D, but I don't think they originally intended to release Finding Nemo or any of their older films in 3D.

Wow, really? This is the third Disney movie that will be in 3D, after Sleeping Beauty and The Lion King. I remember when I first saw Finding Nemo in 2003. I saw it twice!! I guess we'll see if it works out in the box office this September.
