Disney just keeps delivering the good news! Tonight, the company is dropping an entire stage performance of one of its most classic tales absolutely free.
Yup, according to a press release, Disney is continuing its #DisneyMagicMoments campaign with a special virtual viewing of the popular stage show “The Lion King: Rhythms of the Pride Lands” from Disneyland Paris. Airing tonight at 7 p.m., ET, children and parents across the country can watch the show, with a view that'd rival the front row.
The show (which runs about 30 minutes total) is an original Disneyland Paris creation and features singers, dancers, acrobats and drummers as it tells the story of Simba, Nala, Rafiki, Mufasa, Scar, Timon and Pumbaa.
The company also shared several downloadable Lion King activity sheets for everyone at home. So, while you’re singing along to the show’s renditions of classics like “Circle of Life,” “Hakuna Matata,” “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” you can create some magical artwork to go along with it (download available here). To really round out the evening, why not add some Disney-themed snacks to your viewing party?
ICYMI: Disney also recently streamed the fireworks for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween party. The Jack Skellington-themed display marked the theme park’s “Halfway to Halloween” extravaganza, which featured a combination of lasers, pyrotechnics and state-of-the-art projections.
We definitely needed a little Disney magic to spice up this Memorial Day Weekend.
