The Lion King musical has started its four-month run in Scotland’s capital.

An international cast of 52 performers from 18 different countries are taking part in the show at the Playhouse in the city.

More than 210,000 tickets have already been sold for the run but there are seats left, particularly for November.

A fleet of 23 trucks have been used to transport the set and costumes, making it the largest theatre production to tour Europe.

Jo Beale, General Manager of The Edinburgh Playhouse, said: “We are thrilled that Disney’s The Lion King has opened it’s only Scottish season at The Edinburgh Playhouse for a spectacular four month run. We look forward to welcoming several hundred thousand people to the Scottish premiere of this wonderful production, making it undoubtedly the greatest theatrical event the venue has ever seen.”

The Disney film was first adapted for the stage in Broadway in 1997.

The production is on at the Playhouse until January 18.
