Share This!

We are getting closer to the official film debut of the “live action” version of The Lion King and Guests who visit the Walt Disney World Resort this weekend may have the opportunity to see some of the stars of the film in person.

On Saturday, the voices of young Simba (JD McCrary) and young Nala (Shahadi Wright Joseph) will lead the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade as honorary Grand Marshals. The Magic Kingdom parade kicks off at 3:00 p.m.

Following the parade, JD and Shahadi will continue celebrating the film over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. For those who are unaware, the park is currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of the animated version of the film with entertainment, eats and treats and more.

The Lion King hits theaters on July 19.
