Q: What was your first experience with the Lion King story?
A: I first watched the movie with my aunt when I went to visit her one summer. I loved the story and a few years later I actually got to see it at the Orpheum, which was really exciting and an amazing experience.
Q: Why do you think people relate to Lion King?
A: People can relate to The Lion King because it shows many important aspects of life. From the power of true love to the pain of losing a loved one, the story touches some of the most important emotions felt by human beings: grief and love.
Q: What has the story of Lion King taught you?
A: One of the most powerful lessons in The Lion King and one of the most popular songs, is The Circle of Life. This is an important lesson to me because it shows that we are all born and eventually we all die, but each of our lives has an impact on this planet. Whether it is small or large, we all have a meaning and purpose to the share in this world.
