BREAKING: Entertainment Will Return to Animal Kingdom with Celebration of ‘Festival of the Lion King’
Disney is starting the process of bringing back to work more singers, dancers, technicians and other cast members, from one of the most popular shows at Walt Disney World Resort. Expected this summer, the Harambe Theatre at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park will host that fan-favorite troupe of musical storytellers, along with Simba and his friends, in a “celebration” of the incomparable “Festival of the Lion King.”
When it returns, “Festival of the Lion King” will be presented in a modified format to be mindful of the current environment. There will be adjustments to the show on stage and backstage, including updates to choreography to allow for appropriate physical distancing. Disney will also adjust how the audience is seated, in line with other theater-based experiences at Walt Disney World Resort.
Are you excited for the return (in some form) of Festival of the Lion King?
