Disney Junior has great news for The Lion King fans as they launch The Lion Guard with premiere episodes every day from Monday 18 April to Tuesday 26 April at 18:30.
In these new adventures, Simba and Nala’s cub, Kion, is leader of the Lion Guard, a team of the Pride Lands’ fiercest, bravest, fastest, strongest and keenest of sight.
When he assembled his team, he didn't choose lions to serve with him as tradition dictated, but instead picked friends he believed best exemplified heroic qualities: Bunga, a fearless honey badger; Fuli, a confident cheetah; Beshte, a friendly and good-spirited hippo; and Ono, an intellectual egret. This Lion Guard can achieve anything!
In the first premiere episode of this series, The Rise of Makuu (Monday 18 April at 18:30) Kion is dismayed when upstart Makuu wins the challenge for leadership of the crocodiles. He believes there's more to leadership than just aggression and strength. He’s proved right when Makuu’s aggressive antics threaten the Circle of Life and send the Pride Lands into chaos.
