Not sure that this includes the 3D version. There is a separate listing for $57.99 for the 3D set, and the picture shown above is the not for the US version. Wondering if Amazon used an incorrect picture for the regular blu-ray.

Looks like the euro version, so the DMR will probably be unredeemable.

Definitely the European version. I have one from a few years back and it worked great on my PS3 and now my Xbox One S.

DMR will definitely not work and no digital copy.

Seller is not Amazon. Third party seller fulfilled by Amazon.

It's a decent deal and you don't have to buy in pairs to get the price but this is FAR from an uncommon deal or price for the UK version of Lion King 3D.

Zavvi and Amazon UK run Disney 3D two for deals a few times (2-3 times a year). I picked this one up along with several other Disney 3D Blu-rays from Zavvi last year for right around $11 US after conversion & the modest shipping charge; as well as numerous 3D Disney's released since then in the more recent sales. Zavvi's flat rate shipping has gone up a pound and a third since then but overall prices were about the same or slightly lower in total (depending on the conversion rate at the time of purchase always) because of a lower base charge on the deal that just ended (lasted about 5+ weeks from at the beginning of October or end of September thru the very beginning of November.

Unfortunately for U.S. citizens Disney has all the power here and they flex it. They charge huge amounts and dry up supplies (vault titles) and then don't ever re-introduce them - like the U.S. version of Lion King 3D or Beauty and the Beast 3D etc.. not to mention several titles that never got a U.S. 3D release at all Big Hero 3D and Frozen 3D.
Thankfully Europeans and especially the U.K. are much more aggressive with bad actor companies like Disney that unfortunately get away with gouging their fans here in this country. So we benefit by being able to import those 3D versions for a far more reasonable price 1/5 - 1/3 of the U.S. versions. It's true they don't come with (DMA --> MA Digital or $1.50 worth of DMR points) but the Grey markets can satisfy those needs at a reduced cost on most all but vaulted titles --> Another antiquated thing they don't have to deal with in the UK. Along with access to all those 3D titles not available in the U.S.

Wow quite the rant. Business is business... They have something people want-not need- kudos to them for creating an amazing product and getting paid for it. Buy the stock, not the movies and you'll come out ahead of the game.
Agree- according to the camels this is a pretty average price.

How is the 3D quality? Does it look good? I own the blu-ray version already but would like to own the 3D version as well.

I wonder why they don't make 3d TV any more if people still like to watch 3d movie at home?

I don't think a VPN will work if it's an American DMR account. I'm pretty sure that's what Disney goes by, not just your location when redeeming the code.

Not a lot of people do 3D. Not many people like wearing the glasses. My friend hates it and says it gives her headaches. I love it so I still buy it. But I'm in the minority.

I wouldn't buy the stock...it has been stagnant for 2 years and there are no signs of that changing. Much better investments out there.

These aren't like UV codes from the U.K. were you can do that. Disney killed their European DMR a few years back and so any codes you get from these (the newer ones won't have them) but over the past few years I've gotten some of the older stock from the U.K. 3Ds that still have the UK DMR codes in them and they do NOT work at all.

They do in other countries U.K., other European Countries, China etc. ---> Where 3D movies were reasonably priced and went on sale at even lower prices.
The movie studios wanted 3D dead in this country and priced it accordingly.
Thankfully projectors are still alive and well and used 3D TVs like the 2016 OLEDs will be around for a while. 3D will eventually return to TV and in the mean time projector makers get the additional customers.

The TV manufacturers' cite low interest however the real killer and ultimate reason for that was the ultra high prices for 3D content from all studios compared to the 2D Blu-ray counterparts The first real big 3D sale didn't happen outside of used channels like Gohastings and Family Video until Blk Friday of 2015 when Best Buy ran 40+ 3D Blu-rays for $12-$15. The writing for 3D TVs was more or less on the wall by then despite OLED 3D TVs just excelling at what they do.
Walmart added a few more online and in-store that year (2015 Blk Friday) as well as some of the same that Best Buy had. Walmart even had a couple Blk Friday doorbusters that were surprise cheap 3Ds like Transformers 4 A.O.E. 3D and Van Helsing 3D. Target had at least one I can remember World War Z 3D for ~$4. But after that it was pretty much a return to the normal high prices and in 2016 and during Blk Friday there were only a handful of titles and most of those were from Fox / FoxConnect.
