According to Yahoo! Finance, The Lion King, Disney’s story of nephew/uncle conflict on the African Savannah, recently previewed its stage version of the lion tale in Johannesburg, South Africa in preparation for its official run beginning June 6. Director Julie Taymor shares her excitement: “In the ten years I’ve been working on The Lion King it has been my dream to bring the show to South Africa. For the past decade, South Africa has been my muse — with its vivid colors, rich culture and powerful music. And now, I hope to inspire the people of South Africa with this very special production.”
