Disney is bringing The Lion King back to theaters on Sept. 16, 2011, this time in digital 3D.

The Lion King is the latest classic library title to get the 3D treatment.

James  Cameron’s Titanic is being remastered, and will be released in 3D on April 6, 2012 by Paramount, 20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment.

Released in 1994, The Lion King was a defining moment for Disney, ushering in an animation renaissance. It continues to be the highest-grossing hand drawn animation film of all time, earning $783.8 million at the worldwide box office.

Disney also announced a title change, with John Carter of Mars being shortened to John Carter. That film opens in theaters on March 9, 2012.
