Walt Disney World revives animation classes at Animal Kingdom

Walt Disney World is reviving an animation class that teaches people how to draw their favorite characters.

The drawing class was shut down four years ago, but the Orlando Sentinel reported Monday it will be coming back starting this week.

The classes are called the Animation Experience at Conservation Station and will be held at Animal Kingdom to honor "The Lion King" reboot, released later this month.

Eight animation artists will teach visitors how to draw characters from the movie, such as Simba and Pumba.

The animation class was shut down in 2015 to make way for the Star Wars Launch Bay. Disney hasn't told the artists how long this program is scheduled to last.
