This week, Disney not only announced that a Lion King reboot was happening, but that it would be releasing both a new movie, and tv series, based on the 1994 classic.
The new movie, “The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar”, which is set to be released in November 2015, will follow the adventures of Kion – Simba and Nala’s second son, who bares a striking resemblance to his father, albeit with a red mohawk! The movie will be released direct to tv on Disney’s Disney Junior channel, followed by a brand new tv series “The Lion Guard”.
While fans of the original classic have had mixed reactions to the news, they’ll be glad to hear many familiar voices in the “The Lion Guard” movie and series, including James Earl Jones who will reprise his role as Mufasa, and Ernie Sabella who returns as fan favorite Pumba.
