Burj Khalifa lights up to celebrate The Lion King

Last weekend saw all of our favourite animals from 2019’s The Lion King show up on the big screen. No, not the cinema, we’re talking about an even larger display.

The Burj Khalifa joined up with Reel Cinemas to celebrate the hit Disney remake, showing off all the characters from Pride Rock including Simba, Timon and many more.

The LED display illuminated with characters dancing across the façade of the world’s tallest building.

This isn’t the first time big blockbusters have been displayed on the façade, with previous movies including Godzilla, Marvel’s Avengers, and many more.

The remake is all the hype right now, especially on Spotify where tunes such as Can You Feel The Love Tonight and Circle of Life are some of the top streamed songs.

Still haven’t seen it? For a little teaser, check out our review right here.

You can book your tickets to watch it at reelcinemas.ae.

Now, what other movies will the world’s tallest building be celebrating?
