The movie follows Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, as he assumes the role of leader of the Lion Guard, a team of animals tasked with preserving the Pride Lands. The movie is a precursor to The Lion Guard television series, premiering in early 2016 on Disney Channels and Disney Junior channels around the globe. A special preview of The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar will be presented at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, on Sunday, August 16 (2:00 p.m.), but today Disney Jr. has released the first clip from this TV movie, and revealed the full voice cast.
"The Lion King" is getting a made-for-tv sequel: "The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar" will premiere this November, ahead of the premiere of "The Lion Guard," the Disney Channel's Lion King television series.

Child actor Max Charles ("The Strain") is on tap as Kion, the second-born kid, er, cub of Simba and Nala. The first clip to arrive from the "Return of the Roar" movie is above.

The sequel to The Lion King will kick off with The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar, a movie on the Disney Channel, followed by a series (simply The Lion Guard) on Disney Junior, with Rob Lowe and Gabrielle Union voicing the roles of Simba and Nala, respectively. But since this is about bringing kids into the brand, the plot is going to focus on their cub Kion (voiced by The Strain's Max Charles), who puts together a band of friends, consisting of Bunga, a honey badger (Joshua Rash), Ono, a smart egret (Atticus Shaffer), Fuli, a cheetah (Diamond White), and Beshte, a jolly hippo (Dusan Brown), to patrol the Pride Lands with him. Most important, James Earl Jones is returning to reprise the voice of Mufasa, Simba's father and the one true king. We never forgot you, Mufasa. »

Characters from the 1994 Walt Disney movie “The Lion King” have not been seen in new settings since a direct-to-video sequel appeared more than a decade ago. Now the company is preparing a series that will burnish the franchise to a new generation of viewers who are often harder to win.
Disney will launch “The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar,” a short primetime movie focused on the son of Simba, the hero of the original film, in November on Disney Channel. The program will follow Kion, Simba’s second-born cub, as he and a team of animals known as “The Lion Guard” try to keep the peace in the surrounding terrain. Disney intends to launch a “Lion Guard” TV series on Disney Channel and Disney Junior outlets around the world in early 2016.
The program has been about four years in the making, said Nancy Kanter, executive vice president of »

What do you get when you mix The Lion King with Rob Lowe? We don't know, but we sure can't wait to find out! We've always been kind of in love with the grown-up version of Simba, but now we've got even more fuel to add to that weird and confusing fire with the fact that Lowe will be voicing the famous king of the lions in the upcoming TV movie, The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar. Lowe is joined by Gabrielle Union, who plays his lion wife Nala, and fellow cast members Sarah Hyland, Max Charles (The Strain), Atticus Shaffer (The Middle) and many more. James Earl Jones will be reprising his role as Mufasa (who lives on in spirit), and Ernie Sabella will be returning as »

Netflix has announced an October 9th premiere date for "The New Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show," a new original series from DreamWorks Animation.
The thirteen-episode half-hour series is based on Jay Ward's 1960s animated shorts that first aired during his "Rocky & Bullwinkle Show" and followed bespectacled canine Mr. Peabody and his pet boy Sherman as they travel through time.
In the new take, the duo are late night comedy show hosts in a swank Manhattan penthouse who bring the historical guests to them including the likes of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Napoleon Bonaparte and Edgar Allan Poe.
The series follows on from DreamWorks' attempt at an animated feature based on the property in early 2014 that proved a major bomb at the box-office. One key difference is that the show uses 2D animation, instead of the 3D CGI used in the film, for a hand-drawn look echoing Ward's original shorts.

This week sees quite a few releases hitting shelves/stores, with everything from giant snakes fighting giant crocs to post-apocalyptic survival and hey, there’s even some killer bears and cannibals thrown in for good measure. We thought we’d shine the spotlight on a few of the standout genre (and a couple of non-genre) films that are available to pick up today, and while we’ve tackled some of them already (Inner Demons, Burying The Ex and Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead), we’ve got the rundown on the rest for you fright fanatics!

Anaconda, Into the Grizzly Maze, Joe Dante’s Burying the Ex and the fest-favorite documentary, The Nightmare.

I’ve taken a few days cool down before writing this review, mostly because I’m trying as best I can to let the things I dislike about The Strain not cloud those limited aspects I like. That said, it’s still hard work being a fan of it, because of the odd compunction those making this show have for being sloppy and careless.
After a nice diversion written by Guillermo del Toro himself to give Abraham and the Master a backstory that was needed last season, it jumps right back into the action from the season 1 finale. With Abraham pursuing The Master down the hole he went.
Or rather that’s how it’s cut together, but soon it becomes obvious that this is in fact poor editing, »
