About the DVD
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.”

This new movie is packed with laughs, music, beloved characters and heart, The Lion Guard: Return Of The Roar is a must-own for the entire family!

My Take on the DVD
This was an interesting series that brings you back to the prideland and allows you to meet Simba’s kin as well as new friends as they have to create a team that will lead the prideland into the future. It was fun to see the relationships build, but also experience the humor, music, and more in every episode. The writing in the series was strong and the characters that are developed are strong. In every episode there are specific messages being shared as well and as a parent I can say that the messages I saw were ones that I want my daughters to be hearing. The animation was of high-quality and you can see and experience the passion of the animators and writers in how well both mesh together to create a wonderful series your whole family will enjoy!
