Sources familiar with the situation tell us that construction is set to begin imminently in Africa for the new 'Festival of the Lion King' theater.

The show is currently located in Camp Minnie-Mickey, but is rumored to be displaced by the planned AVATAR land. The popular live show is expected to continue in its current location until the new theater is ready. The 'Wild Africa Trek' check-in location was relocated earlier this week, in another step to freeing up the space required behind Tusker House and the Dawa Bar.

The move has not yet been confirmed by Disney, and as such, should be treated as speculation at this point.
