The Lion King was my all time favorite Disney movie when I was little so I love that the story continues in The Lion Guard. It is a fun show that we can all watch as a family. In this DVD the return of Scar is a fun change by merging my love of the original movie with the show of today. Kion is a great leader for his pack of friends but he always needs their help along the way. The 5 episodes on this DVD are especially entertaining as we see Scar in one and baboons in another which are a big hit with my girls. A fun show and we never miss a new episode.
