‘Tale of the Lion King’ Fact Sheet
ANAHEIM, Calif. – Beginning May 28, 2022, Disneyland Resort will present a new staging of “Tale of the Lion King” – a unique theatrical adaption of Disney’s “The Lion King” – at the Fantasyland Theatre in Disneyland Park. This live stage production introduces all-new set pieces, original musical arrangements and choreography, with every aspect of the show honoring and drawing inspiration from the cultural roots of this timeless story. “Tale of the Lion King” is one of the ways guests can Celebrate Soulfully at Disneyland Resort.
An instant hit with guests of all ages when it debuted in 2019 at Disney California Adventure Park, the show is narrated by a traveling troupe known as The Storytellers of the Pride Lands, who re-enact the tale of how a lion cub became a king through dialogue, song, dance and percussion. As guests rediscover Simba’s journey, they’ll enjoy unique arrangements of treasured songs, including “Circle of Life,” “Hakuna Matata” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight.”
From May 28 to July 4, families and kids can unleash their roaring creativity with a coloring craft activity before each performance at the Fantasyland Theatre – and they can dance along to the “Hakuna Matata” musical number with their creations.
The show will run Thursdays through Mondays at the Fantasyland Theatre. Guests can check Disneyland.com or the Disneyland app for show times.
