Q: What was your first experience with the Lion King story?
A: I watched the show as a little child but I didn't have the best memory of it. So I decided to watch the movie before auditions for this play. I wasn't very fond of the show before I watched it a second time. Now it is one of my favorite Disney movies!
Q: Why do you think people relate to Lion King?
A: I think that the Lion King story shows diversity and unity. I think the story shows that there are different animals in the animal kingdom, much like there are people in the world. The movie and musical also shows unity between the animals, giving a theme to the story of unity and that we as people should come together.
Q: What has the story of Lion King taught you?
A: The Lion King story has taught me that life goes on and passes to the next generation. The story has also taught me that the truth will always prevail. An example from the story is when, Mufasa is killed by Scar and everyone thought Simba killed Mufasa. Scar had a chance to be King, but he ruined his chance and had to be punished for his actions.
