There wasn't any: Most of the show's major creatives were tied to the Lion King franchise. Mark Mancina worked on the Broadway Lion King as well as Brother Bear, Tarzan and Moana. Production designer Michael Curry designed puppets for Broadway Lion King, Tapestry of Nations, Jammin' Jungle and so much else. Don L Harper did music for DTV sequels to Lion King, Tarzan and Atlantis. Also National Treasure of all things. Who needs Cirque to do high-concept park entertainment when you can just pull from people that have already dealt with stuff relating to themes in said park?
