Hello & welcome back to Pride Rock. Â Yesterday, we went over what happened the first time, The Lion King was given a TV series, well it was announced in June of last year on multiple sources including Disney’s own blog, Disney Insider that The Lion King would be returning to the small screen with the premiere of The Lion GuardÂ on Disney Junior. This show will air a TV movie in November of 2015 and start airing the first season in 2016
What is Â The Lion Guard about? Well, Â according to Disney Junior general manager, Â it’s The Lion King meets The Avengers. Â While I doubt that’s the case, that would be so awesome. Â Hmm, I wonder.
Nancy Kanter has described the series as being “kind of like The Lion King meets The Avengers.
Actually, Â the show from what I can gather will focus on the son Â of Simba & Nala, Kimba as he goes along with other animal friends trying to protect The Pride Lands. Which include a honey badger, a cheetah, a hippo, & egret. Oh, and here is Â the star of the show, Kion.
At the end of the day, I do think that this show could be good but we still have a ways to go before we see anything from it. Join me tomorrow as we take a look at the music of the Broadway musical to close out Â our visit to Pride Rock.
