The Lion Guard is an American animated television series that premiered with a one-hour movie, The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar, on November 22, 2015, which was followed by a television series on Disney Junior on January 15, 2016. It features Kion, the son of Simba and Nala.

On March 4, 2016, Season two was announced by Disney Junior. According to Kevin Schon, it was expected to premiere in fall 2017 with an hour-long special. But then it was announced as July 7 with two episodes: "Babysitter Bunga" and "The Savannah Summit".

In March 2017, a third season was commissioned, which premiered on August 3, 2019. On January 23, 2019, it was confirmed the third season would be the last, with production wrapping on July 19 of said year.

Premise

"Set in the African Savanna, The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar follows Kion as he assembles the members of the Lion Guard", a news release for the show reads. "Throughout the movie and the series, the diverse team of young animals will learn how to utilize each of their unique abilities to solve problems and accomplish tasks to maintain balance within the Circle of Life, while also introducing young viewers to the vast array of animals that populate the prodigious African landscape".

Development

The series' announcement came after a meeting between Disney Junior general manager Nancy Kanter and Disney chief executive Robert Iger. Iger suggested to Kanter that Disney Junior should consider producing content to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Lion King in 2014. Disney had shown early footage to young test audiences, who were able to make suggestions, such as adjusting the look of the hyenas. Disney Consumer Products launched a line of toys to tie into the television series.

At least five book titles based on the series were released in January 2016: Kion, Pride of the Pridelands, Can't Wait To Be Queen, Bunga's Big Adventure, Meet the New Guard and Kion's Animal Alphabet.

Spin-Off

In January 2016, a spin-off series created by Disney Nature called It's UnBungalievable! was released and features Bunga and Ono.

Trivia

  • This is the second The Lion King television program, the first was Timon & Pumbaa.
  • As revealed by Ford Riley in an interview for TV Daily, The Lion Guard takes place in between Kiara's first encounter with Kovu and her first hunt in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride.[1] This statement was confirmed in the episode "Lions of the Outlands".
    • However, Season 3 is parallel with the events of the second half of the film, while the last two episodes take place during, and after the end of The Lion King II.
  • Unlike any of the previous productions in The Lion King franchise, most episodes of this TV series do not include any cartoon sound effects entirely (due to having a more realistic theme), although fewer episodes, such as Janja's New Crew and Rafiki's New Neighbors did, however, include a few cartoon sound effects, such as a coconut hit sound effect.
  • It is the first Disney Junior show to feature character deaths, being Ushari and Janna.
  • Eden Riegel (Kiara) and Diamond White (Fuli) share the same birthday (January 1st), with Riegel being exactly 18 years older than White.
