Well, it’s time we say goodbye to the Circle of Life: An Environmental Fable film that is shown at The Land Pavilion in Epcot. The attraction will close after over 20 years on February 3.
The film, for those who haven’t seen it, is an edutainment offering that stars Simba, Pumbaa, and Timon, from The Lion King. The film spotlights the environmental inter-dependency of all creatures and demonstrates just how easily the ecological balance can be upset. The 20 minute show is certainly an enlightening one, although also a little be sobering too. (And the many who napped there will also miss the dark respite.)
There is no word on what exactly what will be replacing the film. For the temporary time being, it appears that the theater will be used by Disney Performing Arts to host student workshops and performances.
