Disney Parks has announced the “Tale of the Lion King” stage show will be returning to delight Disneyland guests on May 28.
The show has not only been revamped, but it has moved to a permanent home at the Fantasyland Theatre at Disneyland Park.
This original, story-theatre adaptation of Disney’s “The Lion King” will be staged in an all-new presentation, as depicted in this artist rendering below.
A traveling troupe known as The Storytellers of the Pride Lands will weave the tale of how a cub becomes a king through dialogue, song, dance, and percussion.
Disney says from the scenic and costume designs to the new original musical arrangements and choreography, every aspect of “Tale of the Lion King” honors, and is inspired by, the cultural roots of this timeless story.
The show originally debuted on June 7, 2019, at Disney California Adventure park. It was performed on the outdoor Palisades Park several times a day throughout the summer, closing on September 2, 2019.
The new version of “Tale of the Lion King” will last about 24 minutes, and include new arrangements of favorite songs from the film, including “Circle of Life,” “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” and “Hakuna Matata,” among others.
