CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Disney’s CEO is apologizing for a fee leveled against a school that showed the new Lion King movie without the proper license.

Emerson Elementary in Berkeley was billed for “illegally screening” the film at an event that raised $800.

PTA President David Rose says a parent bought the movie at Best Buy and showed the film.
