The pride is in an uproar! Disney has just announced some very exciting news! The ‘Festival of the Lion King’ at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will return this summer.
“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. We’ll also adjust how the audience is seated, in line with other theater-based experiences at Walt Disney World Resort. “- Disney Parks and Entertainment
The Festival of the Lion King has been closed since the original park closure in March. Many wondered if it would return or if it was one of the unfortunate casualties of the pandemic.
