VIDEO: THE LION KING Shows Support For the England Football Team, The Lionesses


If anyone knows what it takes to be a Lioness, it's the cast of Disney's landmark musical The Lion King!

As part of Disney's support of Women's and Girls' football, and to wish the England Women's team (also known as the Lionesses) good luck in France, cast members Yolanda Burke, Makoto Iso and Crystal Nicholls created this special video with England team players Millie Bright, Karen Carney, Fran Kirby and Carly Telford.

This year The Lion King is celebrating 20 years at London's Lyceum Theatre. Since the UK premiere in London on Tuesday 19th October 1999, THE LION KING has entertained over 15 million theatregoers and remains the West End's best-selling stage production and the sixth longest-running West End musical of all time. THE LION KING is produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, under the direction of Thomas Schumacher.

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains to the evocative rhythms of Africa, this spectacular production explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music to tell the timeless story of Simba and his epic journey to fulfil his destiny as King of the Pridelands.
