MUMBAI: To recreate the same magic that some Hollywood films had on people‘s minds and at the box office at the time of their release, a slew of international hits are now being converted into 3D for a re-release.

Hollywood filmmakers have found a way to match up to the expectations of the contemporary and tech-savvy audience. The trend has already been a success for a few films such as The Lion King, Finding Nemo and Titanic to name a few. For that matter, The Lion King, that released in 3D in September this year, topped the US box office for the first two weeks of its run and earned almost $80 million.

Here‘s taking a look at a few films that will again strike the silver screen though in their 3D avatars.

Independence Day: Roland Emmerich‘s sci-fi blockbuster will return to theatres in 3D now. Though the date has not been decided yet, the producers and Emmerich have long been contemplating a sequel to the movie and have, therefore, decided to come up with a 3D release of the original movie to test waters and find out if there‘s interest among fans for continuation of the story.

Star Wrs II

After an overwhelming response to the Stars Wars Episode I 3D release, the series maker George Lucas and new owner Disney have decided to come up with the re-release of its second and third episodes in 2013. While the second film will be released on 20 September next year, the concluding part will release on 4 October, 2013.

The Little Mermaid

Released in 1989, the animated classic about a 16-year-old mermaid and her desire to explore more about human beings, has already won two Oscars, and is coming back to enchant the fans in 3D format on 13 September, 2013.

Jurassic Park

A Steven Spielberg classic, this film was the first of the Jurassic Park series and will be re-releasing in 3D in the wake of the film‘s 20th anniversary next year. Talking about the coexistence of dinosaurs and human beings and the fight between the two species, the film will be hitting the screens on 5 April, 2013.

Monsters Inc.

It wowed the audience when it first released in 2001, and following The Lion King‘s 3D success, the studio is also releasing this one in 3D on 19 December this year.

A few films that have already been re-released in 3D are Titanic 3D, The Lion King 3D, Finding Nemo 3D, Beauty and the Beast 3D and Star Wars: Episode I 3D.
