Very strange. I would have figured they'd want to use one of the Walt films as their springboard into 4K for traditional animation. That or something like Mary Poppins.

Yes. Snow White has for the last two generations been their big opening salvo. Guess not anymore

Animation in 4k has been a major disappointment so far for me so I'm not getting this until it's been confirmed to be a nice a/v upgrade over the blu-ray. I'm not holding my breath.

Shouldn't be a "nice upgrade" over the blu-ray since the PQ is already excellent.

Honestly, they keep re-animating the older stuff, redoing the composite work and such, and this makes me uninterested in the whole thing. I just want the original movie, as-is

Think about it... the 4K market at the moment is mostly people who want big flashy blockbusters to watch on their expensive new panels.
The Lion King is probably the closest you’ll get to a ‘blockbuster’, and has a gorgeous color palette MADE for 4K.
It’s a smart move to release a big movie like Lion King got their first traditionally animated 4K release — especially with the remake coming out.
Really, in today’s market, what are you going to move more units on 4K for ... The Lion King or Snow White?

Exactly. The Lion King is their biggest traditionally animated film in terms of box office (the only movies from Walt Disney animation that are bigger are two of the 3D ones; Frozen and Zootopia). With Disney bringing their animated catalogue to 4K, I'd rather they start with the movies that are going to sell well to support making 4K releases of ones that might not sell as well.

All I can hope for is the reinstatement of the original animation where it was replaced for the IMAX release that never happened, but I know I'm out of luck there.

Hopefully the HDR pass will make a difference. Not counting on an uptick in clarity and detail.

How, exactly have I been wrong? I find it very odd that Disney would release one of it's biggest animated movies of all time on UHD in Australia, but not do a release here in the states. The only pre-orders that have come up have been IN Australia. This may be coming out on UHD in December in Australia but from past experience of how Disney has handled their releases on home video, it seems very, very unlikely. However, I will freely admit that I am wrong if this does happen.

I think UHD can add crispness to lines and fuller colors. Granted, TLK looks great on BD, unlike Aladdin, for example. Which is good overall, but has scaling artifacts.

I would probably always watch the 3D version.

the 3D conversion IS great, but the audio remix is not that hot.

This is listing pre-order on JB hifi as of the last 24-48hrs

I can't recall a pre-order at that outlet which later cancelled. They are super reliable for their listings

Is there a link I can read up on this? Searching for 'remade animation' for Lion King just brings up results about the 2019 live action version.

My feeble hope involves the Disney logo regaining the original audio, especially after I learned the Lion King 1 1/2 Blu-Ray apparently does that:

And the revisions were used for all the home releases past 2002? This is a shame. I mean, I get that they felt some things could be 'updated' but at least an original theatrical cut could be available in HD+.

Yeah, there's no way to watch the original version in HD, at least officially. Maybe someone has done a homebrew project for it, but I haven't seen it. Then again, this particular film, while fantastic, isn't one I follow too closely in the fan restoration scene, so maybe such a project exists.
