The Lion King

You will probably all know the film ‘The Lion King’ and some lucky people will have also seen the stage musical. For the next two terms, we will explore with the children issues linked to different scenes from the film that link to different Bible stories. We have suggested sections of the film to show if possible (with scene numbers or times). However, if you can’t show the DVD, there are synopses of the scenes for each week included with the notes. The weeks are in order of the film scenes rather than Biblical order.
