Disney recently unveiled a new ‘The Lion King‘  Snapchat lens to commemorate the  20th anniversary (has it really been that long?!?) of the hit Broadway musical.

For those of you not on the Snapchat train yet, a lens is essentially an overlay that is added to a picture (usually a selfie) that adds a fun, customized special effect to the image. The new The Lion King lens uses augmented reality to add the mask to a user’s selfie making it look like they are wearing the iconic costume. Users can then share the image with other Snapchat users.

To give you a better idea of what this is all about , here is a quick video introducing the new lens:
