    Exclamation Festival of the Lion King Returns to Walt Disney World in Summer 2021

    The popular Festival of the Lion King stage show is scheduled to return to Disney's Animal Kingdom park in Summer of 2021:

    It has also been implied that additional stage shows are set to return; but no further details were announced at this time:

    On one hand, I'm really excited to see FoLK when I go this summer, but with my luck, when it says "scheduled to return this summer", it probably means after the end of July But I'm still hoping
