MIZIZI International represents the generation that grew up with this beloved animated film and is now tapping into the next generation with the expansion into kid sizes. The release of Disney’s The Lion King created a lasting impact on our childhood as it resonated with us long before we were aware of our identities. From the opening score chanting loudly in Swahili to Simba introducing us to his carefree mantra, “Hakuna Matata,” Disney’s The Lion King is a subtle reminder of our childhood roots. On its 25th anniversary and in celebration of the remake, we’re proud and honored to announce that those roots can now be worn with our collaboration between MIZIZI International and Disney.
