We'll have a closer look today at Shanghaî Disneyland Disneytown Walt Disney Grand Theater where will play The Lion King musical each evening in Mandarin language. Above and below, the theatre entrance facade.
The theater will be located on Disneytown Broadway Plaza, and here is a high-res version of the official rendering.
The theater will also be eventually use during day time for park shows as there will be an access to its entrance from the park. On the aerial picture below, the Walt Disney Grand theater is the big red building at the center.
Let's have a look at the inside with this picture below posted on Instagram by Michael Chase who participated to the building of the theater.
Next picture shows the stage as seen from the audience seats.
This next picture shows the backstage area, one that will not be seen by the audience!
A last look at the theatre facade at night and you'll note that the marquee now has "The Lion King" banner. For sure it will sound odd for a non-Chinese to hear the Lion King musical sung in Mandarin , but i'm sure that locals will enjoy a lot this world acclaimed musical!
