For the kiddos, here comes a The Lion King reboot that you can possibly get behind! The set up of the promo for The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar is that Kion, Simba and Nala's second cub and his buddy a honey badger (who keeps saying "my two uncles" and references Hakuna Matata) end up at the "shadowy place," which Kion calls "The Outlands."
At first, it was a concern that The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar would be a disappointment, but the animation and all follows suit with the movies, so it'll be exciting to see how they transition this to new times. I just wish they could have gotten Matthew Broderick to resume Simba's voice, rather than Rob Lowe.
The new show is slated to hit the Disney Channel in November.
