Julie Taymor (born December 15, 1952) is an American director and writer of theater, opera and film. Since her adaptation of "The Lion King" debuted in 1997, 24 global productions have been seen by more than 90 million people in over 100 cities in 19 countries, earning it the highest worldwide gross of any entertainment title in box office history. Lion King also received 11 Tony Award nominations, earning Taymor Best Director and Costume Designer, and was honored with more than 70 major arts awards worldwide. Her film "Frida" about revered Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was nominated for five Academy awards, and her "Across the Universe" won approval from both Yoko Ono and Paul McCartney. These films developed her reputation for respectful handling of the sensitive legacy of artists amongst their fans. Taymor created the Taymor World Theater Fellowship in 2016 to provide opportunities for enterprising young theater directors to push their boundaries through travel, exposure to new experiences and experimentation.
