The Lion guard

Disney’s original story, The Lion King, lives on in the animated movie, The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar.

Synopsis:  Be prepared for the Rise of Scar!  With the arrival of the Dry Season, tensions run high, patience wears thin and thirsty tempers flare.  To make matters worse, Janja’s hyenas, aided by Ushari the snake, discover a secret that could bring back the vengeful spirit of the legendary villain, Scar!

The Rise of Scar

As a Common Sense Media Insider, I’m sharing their review of this movie:

The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar is a “movie” that consists of the title story, which is one extended episode from the TV series The Lion Guard (Episode 5, Season 2), and four episodes from Season 1 (“The Trouble With Galagos,” Episode 16; “Janja’s New Crew,” Episode 17; “Four Baboons,” Episode 18; and “Lions of the Outland,” Episode 20). In all of them, Kion, son of Simba and Nala, grandson of Mufasa, is the leader of the prestigious Lion Guard, an assortment of lovable and skillful animal characters that protects the Pride Lands. Kion has the remarkable power of “The Roar of the Elders,” which enables the Guard’s leader to connect with the brave lions of the past.

Each story echoes “The Circle of Life” premise of the original movie, and includes significant messages about responsibility, inclusion, teamwork, and the enduring grace and symmetry of nature. Caution: for little kids who are not yet able to discern imaginary from real, there’s peril and mild action throughout. Villains, all members of the animal kingdom, are predatory, conniving, or envious. They chase, bare scary teeth, and menace all of the heroes and innocents in their quest for either food or power. Viewers can expect quality all around in keeping with the high standards of the Lion King franchise. The Disney Company has also released new toys related specifically to “The Rise of Scar” episode.

The stellar voice cast includes: David Oyelowo (“Queen of Katwe”) as Scar; Rob Lowe (“St. Elmo’s Fire”) as Simba; Gabrielle Union (“Being Mary Jane”) as Nala; Max Charles (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) as Kion; Joshua Rush (“Andi Mack”) as Bunga; Atticus Shaffer (“The Middle”) as Ono; Diamond White (“Sofia the First”) as Fuli; Dusan Brown (“Blaze and the Monster Machines”) as Beshte; Landry Bender (“Fuller House”) as Makini; and Christian Slater (“Mr. Robot”) as Ushari.
