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 series picks up with the movie left off and bring is six exciting episodes. 

Fuli's New Family
Bunga the Wise
Follow That Hippo
The Search for Utamo
Never Judge a Hyena By It's Spots

This is a wonderful series that my children really enjoyed. 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.
