Both animated classics will hit the third dimension this fall.

According to advertisements found on the Internet, it looks like Disney/Buena Vista is working on 'The Lion King - 3D' and 'Beauty and the Beast - 3D' for a late 2011 release.

Not much is known about either release at this time, but both titles seem to be Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo packs.

Other rumored titles coming to 3D include: 'Bolt,' 'Chicken Little,' 'G-Force,' Meet the Robinsons,' and 'Nightmare Before Christmas.'

Suggested list price for each Blu-ray will likely be $49.99.
