So we are very excited about this great new exhibit that reveals the inspiration behind Disney’s hit stage musical The Lion King, exclusive to London’s National Geographic Store gallery.

Exploring The Lion King marks the first time a complete exhibition has been devoted to The Lion King in the UK.

This exhibition will give you the opportunity to learn all about the inspiration behind the musical and how they managed to make it the successful show it is today. At Exploring The Lion King you will be able to see the craftsmanship behind the show, including complete costumes from the production, original set models, sketches and miniature costume models.
