The public is invited to enjoy the Disney masterpiece, “The Lion King,” on Sunday, September 16 at Mission Viejo City Hall. During this special presentation, children are invited to wear Lion King apparel or bring toys from the beloved film.
The G-rated film, which airs at 2 p.m., is sponsored by the City’s Community of Character Committee. The movie coincides with September’s character trait of “responsibility.”
Considered the top Disney film of all time, this animated treasure appeals to both children and adult audiences. Borrowing elements from Hamlet, classical mythology, and African folk tales, the film tells its tale with spectacular visuals and lively music that include the hit songs “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?,” “The Circle of Life,” and “Hakuna Matata.”
Character educators Elaine Portnoy and Bob Hayes will lead a brief discussion following the film, which will be shown on a theater-size screen with theater-style seating and surround-sound at 200 Civic Center, just across from the Mission Viejo Library.
