Disney’s 2019 remake of “The Lion King” is possibly the most anticipated movie of the summer, so what better way to celebrate than by giving back to wildlife in need? Two all-new plush toys that celebrate our favorite lions Simba and Nala are now available online and at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and these special lion cubs are part of a global campaign to help conservation across Africa. Let’s take a closer look.
The two plush lions are part of The Walt Disney Company’s global campaign to raise awareness of the crisis facing lions today. This campaign supports the Lion Recovery Fund and its partners that will help advance conservation across Africa, with the goal of doubling the number of lions in the wild by the year 2050. There are 40,000 plush lions available for purchase, and that number represents the number of lions whose future Disney and the Lion Recovery Fund are working to ensure. Best of all, Disney will donate $5 to the Wildlife Conservation Network in support of the Lion Recovery Fund and its partners for each Special Edition Simba and Nala plush sold worldwide.
Here’s where you can purchase the Simba and Nala plush lions:
- Now available online and at Mombasa, Island Mercantile, and Discovery Trading Company at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as well as Seaside Souvenirs at Disney’s California Adventure park.
- Starting July 1st, available in World of Disney, Elias & Co. and Bazaar at Disneyland Resort and in Emporium, Mouse Gear, World of Disney and more locations at Walt Disney World Resort.
