Animated 'The Lion King' Series Coming To Disney Junior

Everyone, meet Kion — Simba and Nala’s son!

Disney Junior is bringing reigning King Simba and his family to television in the fall of 2015 with a movie and television series in 2016.

The show, titled The Lion Guard, begins as Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, assumes the role of leader of the Lion Guard, a group of the bravest and brightest tasked with preserving the Pride Lands.

Instead of assembling a team of young lions to serve with him, Kion challenges tradition by calling upon friends he believes are the best choices — Bunga, a fearless honey badger; Fuli, a confident cheetah; Beshte, a happy-go-lucky hippo; and Ono, an intellectual egret.

Th stories will also include special appearances by Kion’s deceased grandfather Mufasa, Timon the meerkat, Pumbaa the warthog, Rafiki the mandrill, Zazu the hornbill, and Kion’s older sister, Kiara, the future Queen of the Pride Lands.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Simba and Nala’s family on TV?
