More 3-D Technology Movies Hitting the Big Screen

Get ready for some serious 3-D movie action in the next few years as filmmakers and studios ramp up production of 3-D films. Why is everyone jumping on board? Major movie production companies are hoping that 3D movies will increase attendance by drawing more people to movie theaters, and therefore boost ticket sales, which have steadily been decreasing.

Disney and Pixar have already announced that they will release all of their movies in 3-D and Monsters vs. Aliens will be the first movie produced by Dreamworks Animation that will be in 3-D. Already, big film producers like James Cameron and George Lucas are working on 3-D films including Avatar and a new and improved 3-D Star Wars, how great is that?! And the best part? This 3-D enhancement doesn't require wearing funny red and blue special glasses!

I saw a preview the other day for a new animated star wars movie, but no mention of 3D. Wonder if its the same?

Oh don't get me wrong I'm not saying it's an entirely bad thing, after all I absolutely love the newer movies like Monsters Inc. and the Incredibles; I just miss the good old days. Whatever happened to the magical Disney fairytales (even though every single one of them were ripped off another story)? :(

KadBunny - Actually... Pixar had nothing to do (directly) with Disney stopping production of 2d animated films. We can thank Michael Eisner for that. But Disney is coming out with a 2d film soon (The Princess and the Frog), and hopefully that will do well!!! The people who run Pixar appreciate 2d animation, many of them (like Brad Bird and John Lasseter) were trained in 2d. And I, along with most fellow animators, were excited about the Pixar/Disney merger. It's a good thing for Disney. Michael Eisner was the one running it into the ground. geeksugar - where does it say that we won't need the glasses? Or do you just mean that they won't be the red and blue ones? When I saw Beowulf we used black rimmed, clear lensed glasses. Is that what you meant? Or are they actually figuring out how to make 3d work without any glasses at all???

What's the point in calling it Disney anymore, honestly. :( Pixar's clearly taken over. *exasperation* I dunno, I'm totally a die-hard classic Disney girl. 2D fairytales forever~
