We’re back with another installment of “Get Moving with Disney Family,” and we think this may be our best episode yet! To all you Lion King lovers out there—this one’s for you!
This classic film is a favorite of both ’90s kids and our kids alike, so we just know you and your little one are going to have a blast with this workout. It starts off with a stretch inspired by that iconic moment Rafiki raises baby Simba into the air and moves into a fun-filled, action-packed Mufasa “roar.” You’ll never have more fun breaking a sweat!
To keep the Lion King fun going all day long, we’ve rounded up our favorite crafts and recipes inspired by the movie!
