There hasn’t been an official release date set just yet, but you can pre-order it though Amazon.
Make sure you clip the coupon for $8 off! This will bring the price down to $28.99, which is actually cheaper than the 2 disk combo pack.
Amazon also has a price guarantee. So, if the price drops between the time you order The Lion King and the time it ships, they will give you the lowest price! Plus, if you decide later you don’t want it, or find it cheaper, you can always cancel the order before it ships. I actually did this with Tangled. The price dropped the same day the movie shipped and I received a $5 credit to my card by later that afternoon. I ended up getting the 4 disk 3D combo for only $16.99! Now, we don’t have a 3D TV (or any plans for one in the near future), but I figure, why not get the most up to date version possible, especially when I can get it cheaper than the other versions…right?
