What is The Lion King about?

The Lion King centres around a fearless king who meets his untimely demise at his power-hungry brother’s paws. Simba, the king’s son, is forced to flee to the Serengeti Plains to escape Uncle Scar’s menacing gaze. The young prince soon bumps into Timon and Pumbaa, an unlikely, but undeniably hilarious double act, who soon become Simba’s BFFs.

At first, the pair take on a protective role, however when it soon becomes clear that Simba can stand up and roar for himself, the relationship blossoms into a friendship full of laughter and brotherly love. Although he abandoned his homeland when he was a young cub, Simba knows he must return and free his people from Scar’s evil rule. With the help of his friends, his father's wisdom, and his newfound courage can Simba take his rightful place at the top of Pride Rock?

About The Lion King film

Released in 1994, the groundbreaking animation quickly became that year’s highest grossing film. A hit with audiences and critics alike, Disney’s tale of parents and power reigned supreme at the award ceremonies, receiving two Oscars and the Golden Globe award for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, the second animation to ever take home the prize in that category in the awards 43-year history.

22 years after the film burst onto cinema screens, The Lion King was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, an organisation that protects films that are culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.

The music from The Lion King

The Lion King has one of the most well-known soundtracks in film and theatre history. Written by Elton John and Tim Rice, three of the films musical numbers were nominated in The Best Original Song Oscar, with ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’ eventually taking home the prize. Accompanied by an Oscar-winning thematic score from music maestro Hans Zimmer, the classic cartoon hit all the right notes, and the stage version is no different!

About The Lion King stage show

Brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney’s beloved film has been transformed into a spectacular theatrical experience that explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects, and enchanting music. Taymor made history when she became the first woman to take home a Tony Award for the Broadway version of the production, and quickly went on to pick up an Olivier nomination for the West End transfer. London’s Lion King received eight Olivier nominations in total, taking home the award for Best Choreography and Best Costume Design.

The breath-taking show features over 232 puppets and 50 actors, as well as the much-loved songs of the film. The multiple Olivier award-winning musical will transport you to the dazzling desert and will have you singing ‘I Just Can’t Wait to be King’ all the way home.
