Disney California Adventure will welcome a new stage adaptation of The Lion King to the park this summer.
The new adaptation will be a “highly theatrical”, outdoor, musical production called “Tale of the Lion King”.
The cast will be made up of 18 performers — actors, singers, dancers, and drummers — collectively known as Storytellers of the Pride Lands. They will retell the story of The Lion King in a contemporary style through language, song, and dance.
Take a look at this behind-the-scenes video with Creative Director Susana Tubert and the Disney Parks Live Entertainment team as they prepare with the cast for the new show.
