The Lion King, a musical based on the 1994 Disney animated film of the same name, is set to premiere in Manila in March 2018, and we are squealing! We're already chanting "Hakuna Matata" in our heads.
The international tour coincides with the celebration of The Lion King's 20th anniversary on stage. It will also open in Singapore in June 2018, South Korea in October 2018, Taiwan in 2019, and South Africa in 2020. Tickets for the Manila leg will go on sale in October 2017.
It's still a whole year before the premiere. But while waiting, we can listen to these impromptu performances by The Lion King cast. There's just no stopping "The Circle of Life," may it be in the airport or the subway.
