Walt Disney Studios celebrated the stereoscopic 3D re-release of their Oscar and Golden Globe award-winning animated feature The Lion King this Saturday, August 27 at the historic El Capitan Theatre. Stars from the film in attendance were Robert Guillaume (voice of Rafiki), Moira Kelly (Adult Nala), Jim Cummings (Ed the hyena) and Niketa Calame (Young Nala) who were accompanied by legendary Disney producer Don Hahn, co-directors Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff, and acclaimed animators Tony Bancroft, Mark Henn and Andreas Deja.

A flock of celebrity guests helped fill out the red carpet, including Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Melora Hardin (The Office), Melissa Joan Hart, Ali Landry, Gilles Marini, Antonio Sabato  Jr., Rick Schroeder, Monet Mazur, RJ Mitte (Breaking Bad), Shaunie O’Neal, Adam Irigoyen (Shake It Up), Maria Canals-Barrera and Nolan Sotillo (Prom).

Fans of the celebrated film can re-experience Simba’s Serengeti adventures (and the comedic styling of Timon & Pumbaa!) in a whole new dimension this fall, as The Lion King 3D rolls through theaters in a two-week theatrical extravaganza kicking off September 16, and take home the Diamond Edition release in high-definition Blu-ray and Blu-ray on October 4.

Here are some photos from the fun-filled event.
