Q: What was your first experience with the Lion King story?
A: I probably had my first experience with The Lion King when I was four years old. They have a Lion King show in Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World and my family always went to see it!
Q: Why do you think people relate to Lion King?
A: I think people relate to The Lion King because it has themes that are relevant all throughout life. The Lion King includes concepts such as loss, grief, guilt, friendship, and love. The inclusion of animals simply makes these ideas easier to watch and understand.
Q: What has the story of Lion King taught you?
A: The Lion King has taught me large concepts about life in general. It has helped me understand that things change, but we have to continue living. Change isn't necessarily a bad thing, although it may feel scary sometimes.
