Director Julie Taymor, associate director John Stefaniuk, producer Thomas Schumacher and more discuss the incredible visual design of the screen-to-stage adaptation in the new featurette, part of the ongoing Road To Pride Rock series.

“It’s a tale that every culture, everybody understands – but how it’s told is very original,” Taymor astutely observes.

“Children and adults alike suspend their disbelief knowing that it is theatre – that we are not really in a savannah; that we are not really in a jungle – and they go with you,” Taymor assertively adds.
