Disney shared that they had begun the process of bringing back more singers, dancers, technicians, and other cast members to work from the show, expected to return this summer.

When it returns, “Festival of the Lion King” will be presented in a modified format, with adjustments onstage and backstage—including updates to choreography—to allow for proper physical distancing. Audience seating will also be adjusted to fall in line with other theater-based experiences at Walt Disney World.

Most recently, the Harambe theater was used as extended queue for Avatar Flight of Passage, but it seems that won’t be the case for much longer.

Stay tuned as we await a reopening date for this wild show! If you just can’t wait for summer to see the show again, check out our video below:
