Disney Junior currently in-production of new
Spin-off series based on “The Lion King”

It’s been 20 whole years since the Circle of Life started in 1994 with the premiere of Disney’s 32-nd animated motion feature “The Lion King” and is still memorized by the new generation and now it’s growing even more.

It was announced by the Wall Street Journal that Disney Junior is to create a brand new preschool series aimed at 2-7 year olds called “The Lion Guard”.

The story follows a young lion cub called Kion, the son of Simba & Nala as he gathers a group of animals and forms a group of the same name to protect the Pride lands from destruction and scavengers like hyena’s.

Consultants from the Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort located Orlando, Florida will serve as advisors on The Lion Guard’s episodes, while author and Swahili expert, Sarah Mirza, will serve as a language and cultural advisor.

And yes all of your favorite characters will also be in the series Simba, Nala, Mufasa, Timon, Pumbaa, Rafiki, Zazu and Kion’s older sister, Kiara(From the Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride), the future Queen of the Pride Lands.

The Lion Guard is to air as a Televised Movie in November of 2015 and the sequel series is expected to air in January of 2016, so Hakuna Matata!
