Just like Simba couldn’t wait to be king, it seems his son is also itching for a shot at greatness.
In Disney Channel’s The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar — a made-for-tv sequel to 1994’s The Lion King, which will become its own series in 2016 — Simba’s son Kion must assemble a squad of animal friends with which to protect the Pride Lands. But first, he must sing about it!
TVLine has an exclusive clip from “It Is Time,” the big musical number during which Kion »
There seems to be a little bit of Chris Parnell in everything. Whether you know his face from his roles on Saturday Night Live, Suburgatory, or as the legendary Dr. Leo Spaceman on 30 Rock (not to mention the 80 or so other cameos in TV and film he's made in his career), or if you know his voice as Cyril in Archer, Jerry in Rick and Morty, or even the Progressive Insurance box, Parnell is one busy guy.
Chris Parnell's next big project is the new Netflix Original relaunch/reimagining of the classic Jay Ward/Ted Key Improbable History series of shorts starring Mr. Peabody and Sherman. In The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show, which hit Netflix on Friday, October 9, Parnell voices Mr. Peabody, the genius inventor/time traveling dog who hosts a nightly talk show and goes on historical adventures with his adopted son, Sherman (voiced by Max Charles »

"It is time!" Disney makes the announcement in its new teaser for "The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar," the "Lion King" sequel coming to the Disney Channel on Sunday, November 22. The movie event will lead into "The Lion Guard" TV series, which will premiere in early 2016.
"The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar" introduces Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, who is destined to become leader of the Lion Guard. The Lion Guard is like the African savanna's version of The Avengers, a team of animals made up of the Pride Lands' fiercest, bravest, fastest, strongest and keenest of sight. As Kion looks to assemble new members, he doesn't call upon a group of lions to serve with him as tradition dictates, but instead chooses some of his friends whom he believes best exemplify these heroic qualities -- Bunga, a fearless honey badger; Fuli, a confident cheetah; Beshte, »

He's our closest look yet at the upcoming DreamWorks Animation Television series, The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show. Starring Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live, Rick & Morty) as Mr. Peabody and Max Charles (returning from the Mr. Peabody movie) as Sherman, the program debuts exclusively on Netflix October 9th. The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show presents the co-hosts interviewing a menagerie of historical figures, like George Washington and Edgar Allen Poe, as well as time traveling (as in their classic Jay Ward cartoons) via the Wabac machine to the days of history’s most prominent figures, who are bent on accomplishing anything but what they’re known for – if not for a little help from Peabody. Historical figures Mr. Peabody and Sherman visit in the first several episodes include Napoleon, Cleopatra, Mozart, and Marco Polo. Peabody and Sherman is DreamWorks Animation Television’s seventh show under a long-term multi-episode deal with Netflix. »

Imagine a world where it hasn’t rained in a decade. The once lush, green lands of the Oregon valley now resemble a wasteland, empty and parched. Formerly the site of an orphanage, all that is left are some scattered ruins of farms that remain the last refuges of a few desperate, dying people. Among them are seventeen-year-old Kendal (Haley Lu Richardson) and her boyfriend, Dean (Booboo Stewart), who is so weak from kidney failure that he can barely get out of bed, let alone leave the valley. Fortunately, Kendal knows where an old Cessna is hidden, and spends her days hunting for the missing part she needs to get it up and running when she’s not busy keeping an eye out for a young child, Alby (Max Charles), or giving Dean her share of the last droplets of water that remain in their nearly dried-up well. However, a greedy and heartless water baron, »

Anything which opens with Shakespeare and closes on family in fighting must be worth watching. That The Strain manages to lever arch in some decapitation, merely adds spice to an already combustible combination.
Indulging in a soupcon of theatricality, some smoke and mirrors and impromptu table top surgery is par for the course this week. Ample amounts of ‘muncher’ mutilation combined with Palmer sowing his oats, adds depth and emotion effortlessly. From minute one you get the impression The Strain is stretching its legs, seemingly less eager to impress. This has nothing to do with its ability to wow where necessary, merely a sign of confidence in the story telling.
Penry-Jone’s Quinlan continues representing a linchpin in proceedings, this time in waking up Gus to the realities of his situation. While Eichorst and Palmer face off in a verbal »

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.

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 »
