“The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar” Premieres November 22 on Disney Channel

Lion Guard: Return of the Roar

Fans of the 1994 Disney animated hit, The Lion King have reason to roar with the announcement of the new Disney Channel original movie, The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar.

Set in the African savanna, The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar introduces Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, who is destined to become leader of the Lion Guard, a team of animals comprised of the Pride Lands’ fiercest, bravest, fastest, strongest and keenest of sight.

As Kion looks to assemble the members of the new Lion Guard, he does not call upon a group of lions to serve with him as tradition dictates, but instead chooses some of his friends whom he believes best exemplify these heroic qualities – Bunga, a fearless honey badger; Fuli, a confident cheetah; Beshte, a friendly and good-spirited hippo; and Ono, an intellectual egret.

The new made-for-TV movie will include many of the original voices from the original film, including James Earl Jones (Star Wars), who voiced Simba’s father, Mufasa.

The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar will air Sunday, November 22 (7 p.m. ET/PT) on Disney Channel.
