Festival of the Lion king has been part of Animal Kingdom since it opened and it remains just as popular as ever. It is one of the few live action shows based on a Disney movie that does not attempt to tell an abbreviated version of the movie's plot. The show is essentially a song-and-dance festival overseen by Simba and other animal creatures (Simba, Pumbaa, an elephant, and a giraffe appear as impressive giant puppets). Four tribal leaders headline the show which in which acrobats perform stunts in addition to the dancing and singing.
