North West will appear alongside the likes of Jennifer Hudson

Kim Kardashian is a proud mom as North West has landed her first major performance as part of an upcoming Disney+ Lion King event.

The 10-year-old continues to follow in her dad Kanye West’s footsteps, as she hits the stage as part of Disney’s The Lion King at the Hollywood Bowl, taking place on May 24 and 25.

While North’s special role has yet to be revealed, she’s joining a stellar cast including members of the original 1994 film. Jeremy Irons (Scar), Nathan Lane (Timon), Ernie Sabella (Pumba), and Jason Weaver (Young Simba) will join Billy Eichner, who played Timon in the 2019 live-action remake.

Kim was sure to re-share the Good Morning America announcement on her story, commenting beneath “my baby!!!!” to show her pride as a mother. She then reshared the poster for the performance, featuring North’s picture at the bottom, to advertise the 30-year anniversary occasion.

North was announced alongside Broadway legends Heather Headley and Bradley Gibson, who played Nala and Simba in The Lion King musical, and EGOT star Jennifer Hudson is also featured as a special guest.

This original special will stream at a later date, but it’s expected to include performances of the soundtrack including “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” and “Hakuna Matata” with a full orchestra.

North has been making moves musically, as she featured on her father’s Vultures record on the track “Talking / Once Again” with Ty Dolla $ign. Back in March, attending the listening party for the controversial rapper’s Vultures 2 album, she revealed that she was working on an album.
