The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar on Disney DVD

Meet Kion, second-born cub of Simba and Nala, as he assumes the role of leader of “The Lion Guard,” an elite team of animals tasked with preserving the Pride Lands. Follow him as he assembles a group of unlikely heroes: Bunga the honey badger, Fuli the cheetah, Beshte the hippo and Ono the egret. Join them on a thrilling adventure as they use their unique abilities to defend the Pride Lands from predators and maintain balance within the Circle of Life. Bursting with humor, music, beloved characters and heart, The Lion Guard: Return Of The Roar is a must-own for the entire family!

My Thoughts

The Lion Guard introduces us to the next generation of the Lion King. Kion is the second-born cub of Simba. He is tasked with leading the Lion Guard. This team of heroes are the animals who protect the Pride Lands.  Lots of new characters are introduced to work with Kion including a badger named Bunga, a cheetah named Fuli, and a hippo named Beshte. and a bird named Ono. This mismatched band of heroes prove that anything is possible with teamwork. Even though Simba at first disagrees with the idea of non-lions being int he guard, Kion and his friends prove they have what it takes when they fight off the predators threatening their land. 

This is a wonderful family film that my children really enjoyed. The new songs are all really catchy. It's fun to see the old favorites mixed in with the new characters.  I love how  Kion works to overturn stereotypes and prove that anyone can be a hero.
