Snapchat Unlocks New Lion King Lens in Select Countries Worldwide
The new lens was created in honor of the Tony Award-winning musical's 20th anniversary on Broadway.
Snapchat recently debuted a new lens to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Lion King, one in which users could put on the masks of Simba and Nala in their snaps. Previously, though, the lens was available only when unlocked through spanning special Snapcodes.
Starting today, however, all users of the mobile social media platform in the U.S., U.K., Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Belgium, and Norway will have access to the lens in their lens carousel.
The Lion King, based on Disney's 1994 animated musical, opened on Broadway on November 13, 1997, at the New Amsterdam Theatre, and earned six Tony Awards. Now the fourth-longest-running show in Broadway history, the production is currently playing at the Minskoff Theatre.
