Only a few movies as a child are considered memorable. Usually, the heartwarming story and epic soundtrack are the reasons why these movies are hard to forget. To our delight, one of the most iconic childhood movies is returning to the cinemas this July to rule the African savanna. There’s no better way to celebrate the comeback with lion king-themed cakes and cupcakes. But before the desserts, let us have a rundown of the things you should know about Lion King 2019.
