Celebrating the theatrical release of Disney’s Live-action-remake I proudly announce my upcoming project: A 35 mm-print of “The Lion King” from the initial release in 1994 which will be scanned soon. The English theatrical mixes from the Laserdisc will of course also be added.
I’ve seen it projected a few weeks ago and it’s in fantastic condition. It’s really clean and I only recognized two splices while watching, but it seems like there were only 1 or 2 frames missing (if any). And since it’s a 1994-print it of course also includes the original waterfalls and crocodile-teeth, the “SEX / SFX”-scene and the collapsing Mufasa-cloud.
The plan is to get it scanned and also giving it a little cleaning with Isopropyl before it’s sent. The total cost for scanning and shipping is around 215,- €, the cost for storage and buying the print were already covered. Anyone who wants to help covering the cost to preserve this classic just send me a PM for further detail.
