The Lion Guard – Unleash The Power DVD Review


Disney’s epic adventure The Lion King continues with Simba and Nala’s second-born cub, Kion, and his Lion Guard team as they continue on adventures together throughout the Pride Lands! Follow our group of unlikely heroes: Bunga the honey badger, Fuli the cheetah, Beshte the hippo and Ono the egret. Join this heroic band as they use their unique abilities to protect the Pride Lands and maintain the Circle of Life. As King Mufasa said,” Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.”

This new movie is packed with laughs, music, beloved characters and heart, The Lion Guard: Unleash the Power is a must-own for the entire family! Bring home this heroic adventure on Disney DVD NOW! I really enjoyed Bunga the Wise episode. And I had no idea that Gabrielle Union was Nala. I mean I thought her voice sounded familiar but I couldnt place it. Well now I know and I love it even more. My kids think Fuli is funny. I personally think this is a great show for kids because even though the lessons are shrouded in pride land fun they are there and kids get them. They did fight over the cool Power necklace that came with the DVD but I convinced my daughter that since it was my son’s birthday he should get it. They both come up to me to change out the discs often to their favorite characters. I love being back in the Pride Lands again with Kion and so do my kids!
