BREAKING NEWS: Festival of the Lion King Will Be Back This Summer!
“Everybody look left, everybody look right” Disney has just shared the exciting news that beloved Walt Disney World stage show Festival of the Lion King will be returning to Disney’s Animal Kingdom this Summer!
In a statement on Disney Parks Blog it was announced that starting this Summer, Disney will be starting the process of bringing back to work more singers, dancers, technicians and additional cast members to some of Disney World’s most popular shows! It looks like one of the first to return will be Festival of the Lion King based on the beloved animated film which before COVID-19 had several shows daily at Harambe Theatre in the Africa section of Animal Kingdom.
Disney advised that when it returns “Festival of the Lion King” will be presented in a “modified” format that takes into account social distancing measures. As part of this Disney says that there will be adjustments to the show onstage and backstage. One such example would be choreography to allow for appropriate physical distancing. The venue will also need to adjust their seating areas so that they are more in line with other theater-based experiences at Disney World.
However, that being said, this show marks a welcome return for one of the most popular shows at Walt Disney World and a new dawn for all of the those that have been missing the LIVE entertainment that has been absent from Walt Disney World since the parks reopened last Summer.
So, who’s ready to clap along with “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King,” thrill to the fire knife performance during “Be Prepared,” swoon over “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” and take in the joyous “Circle of Life?” It’s going to be an amazing celebration!
