I received a copy of this DVD for review purposes. All thoughts are my own. This post may contain affiliate links.
I’m a huge The Lion King fan. In fact, if you ask me what my favorite Disney movie is, it ranks right up there in one of the top spots. Because of that reason, my girls have always been fans of the movie too, which was why we were all excited when we started seeing promos for The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar on Disney Junior. We had no idea what to expect – would it be a remake of The Lion King, would it live up to one of the best Disney movies of all time?
It did and continues to as The Lion Guard is on constant play here in our house. The feature film runs for 44 minutes and shares Simba’s son Kion and his adventures to become the leader of the new Lion Guard. While this feature is wonderful on it’s own, you can also catch new episodes of The Lion Guard on Disney Junior on Fridays. The girls have me DVR them while they’re at school!
The reason that we choose The Lion Guard for family movie night is because it’s perfect for the whole family. I think I enjoy it as much as my girls do – from the fun songs [that remind me of the first movie] to the cute one-liners, it’s an easy choice for our family nights.
Disney’s epic adventure The Lion King continues with Simba and Nala’s second-born cub, Kion, and his Lion Guard team as they embark on adventures together throughout the Pride Lands! Follow him as he brings together a group of unlikely heroes: Bunga the honey badger, Fuli the cheetah, Beshte the hippo and Ono the egret. Join this heroic band as they use their unique abilities to defend the Pride Lands from predators and maintain the Circle of Life. As King Mufasa said,” Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.”
As a fun added bonus, your child will receive a Zipper Pull for their Backpack featuring a talking Kion, right inside the DVD.
This new movie is packed with laughs, music, beloved characters and most of all heart. The Lion Guard: Return Of The Roar is a must for any Disney collection and you can bring it to your home any time as it’s on store shelves and Amazon.com now!
