Wimbledon Children's Festival 2024 - Disney in Concert

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast & The Jungle Book to play in concert at Wimbledon Children’s Festival

Wimbledon Children’s Festival has announced more events ahead of its run at the New Wimbledon Theatre in London this summer.

The Novello Orchestra is presenting two classic Disney animated movies in concert – Disney’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast on 10 August 2024, and its original animated The Jungle Book on 11 August 2024.

Disney’s live-action adaptation of the animated classic Beauty and the Beast features a score by eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, and two-time Oscar winning lyricist Howard Ashman. The film also features three new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice.

Directed by Bill Condon, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Audra McDonald with Sir Ian McKellen and Dame Emma Thompson.

The Jungle Book boasts a score by Oscar and Grammy nominated composer George Bruns, and features songs including ‘The Bare Necessities’ and ‘I Wanna Be Like You (The Monkey Song)’ by Oscar-nominated songwriter Terry Gilkyson and the Oscar and Grammy-winning songwriting duo, brothers Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman.

Released in 1967, The Jungle Book is the last film produced by Walt Disney, based on Rudyard Kipling’s novel. The film features the voices of Phil Harris, Sebastian Cabot, Louis Prima, George Sanders, Sterling Holloway, J. Pat O’Malley and Bruce Reitherman.

Other highlights playing during Wimbledon Children’s Festival are the European premiere of The 13-Storey Treehouse by Richard Tulloch (The Book of Everything, Bananas in Pyjamas), adapted from the multi-award winning book by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton.

Wimbledon Children’s Festival runs at the New Wimbledon Theatre in London from 30 July to 11 August 2024.
