LOS ANGELES, Sept. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Discovery Cube Los Angeles is giving museum guests the opportunity to explore the rolling African Savanna landscape through its upcoming exhibit, The Lion Guard: The Exhibit, the first museum exhibit based on Disney Junior’s hit series, “The Lion Guard.” The one-of-a-kind exhibit will be open from September 28, 2019, through January 5, 2020.
“This new exhibit, inspired by the very popular Disney Junior series, brings ‘The Lion Guard’ story to life for young children and their families,” said Joe Adams, CEO, Discovery Cube. “The exhibit will transport guests to the Pride Lands while spotlighting important learning areas such as social and self-development, problem-solving, creative thinking and arts and culture.”
The Lion Guard: The Exhibit debuted at Miami Children’s Museum and follows the story of Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, and his diverse group of friends as they unite to protect the Pride Lands. Guests will discover the unique traits of each member of The Lion Guard team that allow them to work together to maintain balance in the Circle of Life.
Through hands-on activities and interactive and imaginative play, the exhibit takes guests on an adventure in which they’ll help protect the Circle of Life, train in the Lion Guard’s secret lair, explore the power of teamwork, go on special missions, and learn about the African Savanna and the animals that live there. The exhibit will also include the “Little Lion Guard,” an area where younger visitors can engage in developmentally appropriate activities of exploration, creativity, and skill-building.
Created for kids age 2-7 and their families, Disney Junior’s “The Lion Guard” is designed to communicate positive lessons about teamwork, community, and diversity. The Education and Science experts at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park served as consultants, inspiring original stories based on their first-hand experiences, and advising on the characteristics, behaviors, and habitats of various African animal species. Each episode incorporates Swahili words and phrases and includes original songs.
You can help protect the Circle of Life beginning September 28. General admission tickets or memberships are required to be a part of The Lion Guard team. Tickets can be purchased online at https://la.discoverycube.org/event/thelionguard/ or at the science center.
