Disney has announced that a modified version of Festival of the Lion King will be returning to Disney’s Animal Kingdom this summer.
In relation to the returning fan-favourite show, Disney shared the following via the Disney Parks Blog:
“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 just adjust how the audience is seated, in line with other theater-based experiences at Walt Disney World Resort.”
Disney hasn’t offered an exact date for the return of the show, but we’ll keep you updated as we find out more.
