Do you remember Simba, Nala, Timon and Pumbaa?! Of course, you do! We’re probably the same age! The Lion King is such an iconic film of our time and I’m happy that my kids will get to continue its story by watching The Lion Guard.
There’s two spin-offs, okay?! “The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar” is a TV movie that tells the introduction of how the lion guard was formed. The Lion Guard TV series will premiere on April 17, 8:30 am on Disney Channel!
The Lion Guard follows the story of Kion, Simba and Nala’s second-born cub, as he assembles the new lion guard, a group of lions who will protect the Circle of Life. This power is given to second-born lion cubs such as Scar. But he used it for evil so the power was taken away from him. Contrary to what Simba expected, Kion chose his best friends who were not lions to join him in the newly-formed lion guard. Together, they will utilize their strengths and work together as a team to protect the balance of the Circle of Life! There’s catchy songs and lovable characters, easily making this on our what-to-watch list this summer.
There’s an on-going ‘Show Us Your Roar” campaign on Disney Channel Asia’s Facebook Page. Post a video of your kids’ roar on their wall and it might get shown on Disney Channel on Sunday for The Lion Guard premiere!
