I am of the generation that grew up on The Lion King and so any and all things relating to it bring back a huge sense of nostalgia for me. While I was a little bit older teen when it came out, my niece and nephew made this their most watched movie of choice. I had it all memorized and can sing the lyrics to all the songs! Can you feel the love tonight? Yes, yes I can!
The follow up movie The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar is about Kion, Simba and Nala’s second cub. He becomes the leader of “the Lion Guard” and must prove he is worthy of the title and the responsibility.
As usual, there is a lovable cast of quirky characters full of humor and wit. I don’t always love follow up movies to huge hits because it’s so hard to live up to the expectation. However, this one actually captivated me! It has a story all on it’s own but tied in to the original. We even get a cameo appearance from Mufasa!
This definitely lives up to the spirit of the Lion King but with it’s own qualities to love.
I really enjoyed the music on this one as well. It’s catchy and heart warming and true to the Disney spirit. I love that The Lion Guard will be one my kids grow up on!
