An animation legend has recently revealed that an animated classic will hit theaters in all three dimensions in the next few years. Empire recently spoke with producer Don Hahn, who revealed that The Lion King is being readied for a 3D conversion. Here's an excerpt from the site's article.

"I'm actually trying to work out a 3D conversion of The Lion King. I'll be doing that when I go back to the States in a couple of weeks," he said, explaining that we shouldn't expect to see it for a while yet, since the Disney boffins are taking their time in making Simba, Zazu et al pop out of the screen. "It's going to be spectacular - we will do a good job for ya! The technology is tremendous. We did The Nightmare Before Christmas a few years ago and Tim thought it was better than the original because it allows you to walk onto the set."

Hahn also revealed that a sequel to the 80s animated film Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is still in the works.

"Yeah, I couldn't possibly comment. I deny completely, but yeah... if you're a fan, pretty soon you're going to be very, very, very happy."

We reported back in October that Who Framed Roger Rabbit? screenwriters Peter S. Seaman and Jeffrey Price were working on the script for the sequel.
