Beauty and the Beast: 3D Special Edition

Well, the Walt Disney Company keeps finding new and exciting ways to rape your childhood.

It was announced today that Disney will be taking their 1991 classic animated film Beauty and the Beast and converting it to 3D.

The original directors, Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise, are on board with this. They're going to supervise the "3-D-ification" process, which is going to be carefully done using the original digital files that Disney has carefully archived and preserved over the past 17 years.

They figure it'll take 10 months to convert it to 3D.

Beauty and the Beast: 3D Edition will be hitting theatres in 2010.

Is 3D really the next trend in filmmaking? Or is it as Spielberg predicts, and just a kneejerk reaction to the rising popularity of DVDs and home theatres?

Time will tell.
