As we were the first to announce an October 4, 2011 release date for the Walt Disney Animation Studios classic The Lion King on Disney 3D Blu-ray and 8-disc trilogy, we now have additional details on what you’ll be able to find on the collection in the way of bonus features.
We have confirmation that The Lion King will support Disney’s Second Screen technology which allows viewers to use their home computer/laptop or Apple iPad and a free app to view bonus content in sync along with the film. The technology has previously been offered with the blu-ray releases of Bambi and TRON: Legacy. At this time, we do not know if there will be any exclusives on the 3D Blu-ray disc but we will update this article as more information becomes available.
In addition to Second Screen support, the 2D Blu-ray disc contains:
- Pride of the Lion King
- The Lion King: A Memoir ? Don Hahn
- Bloopers and Outtakes
- Deleted and Alternate Scenes and Song
- The Morning Report (Extended Scene)
- Disney Sing Along Mode
- Interactive Blu-ray Gallery
- Disney’s Virtual Vault — DVD Legacy Bonus
The DVD edition will contain only the bloopers and outtakes.
