Cementing itself as a much-loved classic, Disney’s The Lion King first touched our hearts and made us sing along to its phenomenal songs back in 1994. Now 25 years after the release of the animated film, come and feel the love again as Disney’s The Lion King finds its way back to SM Cinema theatres!
To prepare for the return of Disney’s The Lion King, SM Cinema invited moviegoers to Into the Jungle, a mall set up taking inspiration from the film that is full of fun activities and interactive displays. The magic of Disney’s The Lion King was brought from reel to real life with exciting activities such as rock and rope climbing and animal face painting, transporting kids and kids-at-heart into the jungle!
The exhibit will be running in SM North EDSA The Block Atrium until July 18, with a festive kick-off that treated mallgoers with a special performance of Disney’s The Lion King’s beloved songs.
Disney’s “The Lion King”, directed by Jon Favreau, 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 ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
