Disney recently announced their stellar lineup for the live-action version of The Lion King, set for release in 2019 (holy shit, Beyonce). But if that's too long a wait, this might satiate your premature excitement.

The musical will feature a South African ensemble performing the well-loved hits of the Disney movie, such as 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight' and 'Hakuna Matata' live.
