“Tale of the Lion King” is an imaginative adaptation of Disney’s “The Lion King.” The show was a hit with guests when it debuted in 2019 at Disney California Adventure park. “Tale of the Lion King” is brought to life by the Storytellers of the Pride Lands, a troupe of traveling performers who present Simba’s journey in a unique story-theater style with live music and dance.

This updated iteration has new choreography and a larger set with more moving pieces. There are also new lighting and projection effects. Being in a real theatre elevates the performance to a full show, instead of a street performance.
