A New Generation Of The Lion King
In 1994, The Lion King was released in theaters and proved to be a historic move for Disney. A critically acclaimed movie, The Lion King soon became an incredibly successful stage production in 1997, and is still running on Broadway, as well as all over the world. The Lion King 2 and The Lion King 1 ½ were both successful sequels, despite their going straight to DVD. However, there haven’t been any fresh takes on The Lion King since The Lion King 1 ½ was released on DVD in 2004.
Disney has been working on a new Disney Channel television series called “The Lion Guard,” a series that follows Simba’s second-born, Kion. The series will be kicked off by a made-for-TV movie, and the series will start sometime in 2016. They have released a sneak peak at the movie that is due to come out this coming November. And with this clip, we are all kids again!
