I was provided a review copy of The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar and wrote about it because it is AWESOME!
My kids are absolutely nuts about The Lion Guard, I mean nuts they love it! Now available on DVD is The Lion Guard Return of the Roar! This is a show that follows Simba’s second born cub Kion as he forms and leads the Lion Guard, a grouping of lions that protects the pride lands. So couple the brilliant and iconic pride lands from the Lion King and some of the favorite characters from the original movie (Simba, Nala, Timon, Pumbaa, Rafiki) coupled with incredibly consistent new characters.
The show follows Kion as he forms an untraditional Lion Guard that consists of four non-lions. Ono, keenest of sight a cattle egret (bird), Bunga, the bravest a honey badger, Beshte a hippo who is the strongest and Fuli a cheetah, the fastest (obviously). Simba is a constant and is voiced by Rob Lowe, literally the greatest Simba of all time (see what I did there?!?).
The theme song is catchy and addictive and will fast become one of your little one’s favorite songs to sing, but there is great music throughout the show and tons of humor, keeping the tradition from the first movie. This DVD even comes with Beau Black’s music video performance of the theme song “Here comes the Lion Guard.” Below is a description of the 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!
