Disney Junior is planning to release a new animated show titled “The Lion Guard” in November 2015. The show will be based on the popular animated movie “The Lion King.”
The show will be about a lion named Kion, who is the son of Simba and Nala. Here’s what Disney Junior general manager Nancy Kanter said about the show:
It’s kind of like ‘The Lion King’ meets ‘The Avengers.
The show will be introduced to viewers through an hour-long movie in November 2015, then episodes of the show will start premiering in January 2016.
This sounds like a lot of fun!
