Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to talk about a new movie/series that will hit your TV screens very soon. If you liked ‘The Lion King’ (and honestly who doesn’t?), then get excited because all of your fav characters are coming back in the new movie/series ‘The Lion Guard’. ‘The Lion Guard’ is a continuation of the stories from ‘The Lion King’ 1 & 2, but will revolve around the adventures of Simba’s (the main character from the original ‘Lion King’ son Kion. The story of Kion will kick off in November of this year with a movie, and then continue as a series (both of which will air on Disney Junior). It has already been confirmed that some characters from ‘The Lion King’ 1 & 2 will be seen in the movie/series. So let’s talk a little bit about this new instalment in the beloved ‘Lion King’ franchise. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
I think that it’s really cool that ‘The Lion King’ story is going to continue. The movies/TV shows that have followed the original movie have definitely added to the story in interesting ways, so I’m excited to see where ‘The Lion Guard’ takes us next. Since the original movie was released in June of 1994 (which is over 21 years ago…wow!), it’s cool that this story will now bring this franchise alive once again for young kids today (since the movie/show is going to premiere on Disney Junior, you can assume the target audience will be younger kids…and older kids that pretend that their still 5…right? Right!). So what do y’all think of this idea? How do you think that ‘The Lion Guard’ will add to ‘The Lion King’ franchise? Are you going to watch it? Please leave a comment below to let me know what you think people of the internet!
