Festival of the Lion King Moving

Updated: 17 Aug 2013 04:15:00 AM

Released in 1994, The Lion King is one of Disney's most celebrated modern films.

Fittingly, the live stage show "Festival of the Lion King" has been a highlight of Disney's Animal Kingdom since the park opened in 1998.

For 15 years, the show has dazzled crowds of all ages.

Featuring amazing costumes, spectacular acrobatics, and live performances of songs from the film, it remains incredibly popular.

Brand new Theater

In late July, Walt Disney World was happy to announce that the "Festival of the Lion King" would be getting a brand new theater.

The move was prompted by plans to open a new Avatar-themed space in the area where the current theater stands.

To make room for Avatar, the show will be moved to the Africa section of the park, just west of Harambe Village.

Disney believes that this is a more fitting location for the show, and plans on building a venue with an African-themed facade.

Fans of the "Festival of the Lion King" won't have to worry about any changes being made to the show.

Climate-Controlled Building

The performance will stay exactly the same, and Disney World has also mentioned that the new venue will feature an interior space similar to the current theater.

The seating capacity and stage orientation will be very much the same, and the new theater will be an enclosed, climate-controlled building.

Exact plans for the new theater and the new Avatar area have yet to be finalized, but details of both should be released gradually over the coming months.

The "Festival of the Lion King" will make its move sometime in 2014.
