The only thing better than checking out the latest Disney movie in the theater is having a cuddly, plush friend along to watch it with. Build-A-Bear’s new The Lion King collection offers the perfect furry companions to complete the circle of fun.

Fans visiting Build-A-Bear Workshop stores can bring their own The Lion King furry friend to life with a special Lion King heart ceremony. The experience includes taking a photo with their new creation against a realistic Lion King backdrop and they can take home a lion mane paper crown. The plushes range in price from $15 to $32, with clothing accessories and custom sounds, like “Nants’ Ingonyama” (Circle of Life Chant) and an “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” sound chip, ranging from $7.50 to $16.
