Disney's "The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar"
Bring Home This Heroic Adventure on Disney DVD February 23rd*I was given a copy of The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar to facilitate this review, but all opinions are my own.* We all remember the original story of Disney's "The Lion King." Just in case, here is a quick 2 sentence summary: Prince Simba loses his father at a young age and struggles to accept his place in life, and his role as king of the Pride Lands. In the end, Simba chooses to assume his position, defeats his Uncle Scar, and continues the legacy of the lions ruling the Pride Lands. In "The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar" we skip ahead a few years and meet Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala. Kion is gifted with "the Roar" and is put in charge of gathering a team of lions who will become known as "The Lion Guard." Kion realizes that in order to have the best team, he will need to reach out to his friends and look beyond just the lions in his pride. Despite the disapproval of his father, Kion assembles a group of his closest friends, who are also the most unlikely of heroes: Bunga the honey badger, Fuli the cheetah, Beshte the hippo, and Ono the egret. Their first tasks as members of the Lion Guard are to stop the hyenas from destroying the balance within the Circle of Life, and then save Kion's sister from the stampeding herd. Each member has their own unique abilities. The entire episode is full of laughter, music, and lovable characters. James Earl Jones even makes a special "appearance" as the voice of Kion's grandfather Mufasa. Both Sass and Spunk loved this DVD, and can't wait to catch more episodes on Disney Junior. They even danced to the bonus feature song "Here Comes the Lion Guard" performed by Beau Black. You can get the DVD + Digital Copy when it becomes available on February 23, 2016. Special packaging even comes with a free talking backpack clip in the shape of Kion.
