Disney To Release “Lion King” spinoff “The Lion Guard”


The-Lion-Guard-01Thought that was the end of the “Lion King” after 2 and a half sequels? Nope! Disney announced today that they will be expanding the “Lion King” universe with the new TV movie, “The Lion Guard” which will premier in fall of 2015. A TV series will follow it in early 2016 on Disney Channel.

According to Entertainment Weekly,

“The show will follow Kion, the second-born son of Simba and Nala (stars of the previous Lion King movies), who leads a group called the Lion Guard that protects the Pride Lands. Mufasa, Timon, Pumbaa, Rafiki, Zazu and Kion’s older sister Kiara will all make appearances, but the show will focus on the creatures of the Lion Guard, a series of new characters including a honey badger, a cheetah, a hippo, and an egret.”
