Meet The Black Women Helping Make Disneyland's "Tale of the Lion King" A Masterpiece
Comments Off on Meet The Black Women Helping Make Disneyland's "Tale of the Lion King" A Masterpiece
Disneyland continues its celebration of Black Music Month this June, and invites you to Celebrate Soulfully with experiences that honor Black heritage and culture through music, food, art, and more, all taking place at the Happiest Place on Earth.
Part of that cultural celebration is recognizing the Black creators that help make it all possible. Disneyland’s newest show, Tale of the Lion King, now running Thursday through Monday at the Fantasyland Theatre, is a prime example of Disney magic created by Black women.
While previewing the new show ahead of its opening, ESSENCE spoke with Shemika Draughan, hair and makeup designer behind the style of the show’s dancers and actors, and Chef Natalie Willingham, the mastermind behind the culinary experience accompanying the performance.
