Almost 30 years in the past, the Disney animated classic enthralled fans around the globe with its touching tale of perseverance and courage as it chronicles Simba's journey from his early lion cub years to his rise to the throne as King. Showcasing Swahili and Zulu, this musical strikingly showcases 5 indigenous African languages, and the group of performers participating plays a vital role in its achievements.
