Visitors to Animal Kingdom this past weekend received a very special treat! Guests got to enjoy a special surprise performance of the Disney hit song “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” performed by JD McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph who voiced the role of Young Simba and Young Nala in Disney’s new live-action “The Lion King” which comes out in theaters in just a few short days (July 19th.)
This special appearance happened before one of Walt Disney World’s “Festival of the Lion King” shows to the utter delight of audiences.
