The Lion King Reo Māori cast sing 'Circle of Life' in te reo Māori at the movie premiere

NZ 22/06/2022

The te reo Māori version of The Lion King has officially hit cinemas. 

The cast and crew performed an acapella version of 'Circle of Life' in te reo Māori at their world premiere, and it was absolutely beautiful. 

Watch the spine-tingling performance of the waiata. 

We are super excited to see the Te Reo version of the legendary film and hear all the classic songs in the beautiful te reo Māori.

It's set to come out on Disney+ later in September. 

Directors of performance and music Rachel House and Rob Ruha had their work cut out choosing the actors. 

We had so many choices, but we love this cast. They all just fitted together beautifully,
