Celebrate the 30th anniversary of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ classic “The Lion King” for two special evenings at the Hollywood Bowl. Experience life in the Pride Lands in an immersive live-to-film concert event featuring the original 1994 film roaring from the Bowl screens while a full orchestra performs Hans Zimmer’s rousing Oscar®-winning musical score led by conductor Sarah Hicks.

The concert event will also feature live performances of the beloved songs written for the film by Sir Elton John and lyricist Sir Tim Rice, including “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” (Academy Award® for Original Song), “Circle Of Life” and “Hakuna Matata” by original cast singers from the 1994 and 2019 films including Billy Eichner (“Timon” 2019), Oscar® winner Jeremy Irons (“Scar” 1994), Oscar® and Tony Award® winner Nathan Lane (“Timon” 1994), Ernie Sabella (“Pumbaa” 1994), and Jason Weaver (“Young Simba” 1994). Special guests Bradley Gibson (“Simba” in the Broadway stage production) and EGOT winner Jennifer Hudson will join additional celebrity special guests to be announced, along with a full choir, lively projections on the Bowl shell, FIREWORKS and more!

The evening also pays tribute to the success and global phenomenon of Broadway’s Tony Award®-winning musical “The Lion King.” Cast members from the production will perform select numbers for the first time at the Hollywood Bowl, featuring the show’s award-winning and artistically acclaimed costumes, set design and innovative puppetry.

The unique concert event will celebrate the timeless story of “The Lion King” and its evolution over 30 years – from the original 1994 animated film to the 1998 Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical, to 2019’s dramatic live-action film that brought the characters to life in a whole new way, to the present with Walt Disney Studios’ upcoming live-action film “Mufasa: The Lion King” set to hit theatres later this year. Costumes celebrating favorite Lion King characters – Simbas, Timons, Zazus and more are encouraged!

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother — and former heir to the throne — has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is riddled with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from his long-lost friend, Nala, and a curious pair of newfound friends, Pumbaa and Timon, Simba must figure out how to face his past and take back what is rightfully his.

Disney’s The Lion King 30th Anniversary – A Live to Film Concert Event will be produced by Disney Concerts, AMP Worldwide, Fulwell 73 Productions and Live Nation-Hewitt Silva. Gabe Turner and Sally Wood are Fulwell 73’s creative showrunners, and Misty Buckley is production designer.
