The Lion King 3D topped the box office for the second weekend in a row, raking in estimates of $22.1 million and prompting Disney executives to extend the movie's run. Dave Holis, head of distribution at Disney Studios, confirmed that the two-week release will be extended, although the details are still unknown.

In total, the Disney classic has garnered $61.7 million since it hit theatres, setting the film's total earnings since its first appearance in 1994 at $390.2 million. Coming into its second weekend, the childhood classic beat out Brad Pitt-helmed Moneyball and the Taylor Lautner action film Abduction, especially impressive for a film about to be released on Blu-ray next week.
