This fall, the Disney Channel will be bringing back one of their most memorable big screen characters via the new TV Movie called The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar. The new primetime TV movie is expected to come out in November and will serve as the lead in to The Lion Guard TV series scheduled for early 2016 on Disney Channels and Disney Junior channels all over the globe.
The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar is a spin-off of The Lion King franchise and follows Simba and Nala’s second son, Kion, as he becomes the next leader of the Lion Guard. The main premise is that the Guard is supposed to be comprised of the strongest and bravest lions in the Pride Lands, but Kion does the unexpected and instead assembles a diverse team of young animals who will try to conquer challenges using creativity and wit instead of brute force.
