Disney will celebrate ‘The Lion King’ at Disney California Adventure this summer

While crowds are expected to mob Disneyland this summer for the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Disney resort executives don’t want you to forget about their other Anaheim park across the plaza, especially since some annual passholders who would otherwise head to Disneyland will be blocked out under the new two-park system.

Disney has just announced that it will hold a “vibrant celebration inspired by Disney’s ‘The Lion King’” at Disney California Adventure just in time to tie into new “The Lion King” movie that is scheduled to be released to theaters on July 19, directed by Jon Favreau.

According to the Disney Parks blog post, the event at DCA will include music, crafts and more “honoring the spirit of Africa.”

It’s no secret that 1994 “The Lion King” was one of the most successful Disney movies of all time, spawning a variety of sequels and even a hugely popular Broadway show that’s played nearly everywhere. And, since the new “Lion King” movie is being directed by Jon Favreau, whose 2016 “Jungle Book” grossed nearly $1 billion, it will be interesting to see what happens.
