Fans of "The Lion King" can soon find their favorite Disney-animated film on stage and not just on a video store shelf.

A stage adaption of "The Lion King" will open on Broadway next fall with director Julie Taymor, known for her inventive, puppet-filled extravaganzas like "Juan Darien" and "The Green Bird.""It will be a very visual show," Taymor said Wednesday. "I am inventing things for this show that I've never done before."
