Landry Bender Makes Debut As Makini on 'The Lion Guard' This Weekend (Exclusive)

Landry Bender is coming to The Lion Guard — and JJJ has your first, exclusive clip!

The former Best Friends Whenever actress will voice Makini, a spirited young mandrill who serves as Rafiki’s young apprentice.

Makini is described as “exuberant, bubbly and talkative”. She’s also very eager to start her training with Rafiki to become an advisor to the royal family.

In this weekend’s extended episode, “The Rise of Scar”, Rafiki introduces the Lion Guard to Makini.

After overhearing a conversation between Kion and his grandfather, Mufasa, Makini inadvertently gives some information to Ushari the snake which helps him conspire with the hyenas to contact the Pride Lands’ greatest villain, Scar (David Oyelowo).

Eek!

The Lion Guard airs THIS Saturday, July 29th @ 9AM ET/PT on Disney Channel. Check out the first clip below!
