Commemorating twenty of The Lion King musical on Broadway, and as seen by more than ninety million people in nineteen countries on six continents, this book tells the story of The Lion King from its moment of inception in 1989, through the creation of one of the greatest animated films in history, to its phenomenal appearance on Broadway as envisioned by award–winning director Julie Taymor. Hailed as an aesthetic triumph from its opening night, The Lion King continues to garner accolades for its heartfelt story, African-inspired rhythmic
