The Pride Lands are ready to welcome a new generation of heroes. Disney Channel is making plans for The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar, a Lion King spinoff TV movie intended to launch a new TV series.
The Lion Guard will bring back some familiar faces, and even some familiar voices to go along with them. Rob Lowe and Gabrielle Union will play Simba and Nala, and James Earl Jones and Ernie Sabella return from the original film as Mufasa and Pumbaa. Max Charles (young Peter Parker from The Amazing Spider-Man) plays the new lead, Simba and Nala’s second-born cub Kion.
