Meant for nostalgic parents, and acceptable to at least this rabid fan

Okay. No, it's not as good as the original movie. There's no way it could have been. And I don't love it as much as Lion King 2. But you know what? It beats Lion King 1 1/2 by MILES.

This series is very clearly marketed towards the adults that grew up with The Lion King who are now having kids of their own, and there's no shame in that. Given the general quality of the animation and music, it's fine for something capitalizing on that. Parents are going to enjoy watching this with their kids, plain and simple. Yes, if you were a deep, DEEP fan, you're probably going to complain about series plot holes, but this is the series that spent YEARS giving us merch with a firstborn male child, even giving him a NAME (Kopa), and then completely retconning him in movie 2 for firstborn Kiara. There were going to be retcons, and fanatics like me were going to be a bit miffed, but, getting past that, it's fine as entertainment.

Of course, the quality of the show proper is still unknown, but this gives me hope. I'm certainly going to be buying the season once episode one is out. And, with any luck, I'll get to enjoy lots of the Lion Guard for several seasons to come.

I was a lion king kid so I was excited that they decided to revive the series when I had kids. The tv movie its self doesn't exactly fit into the actual movie series (there's this little plot hole of missing characters especially Kion in Simba's Pride, and the Lion Guard itself) but if you ignore that part or just watch it on its own its not bad. Its a movie to start off a kids television show and I cannot complain. The series is adorable and my children love it and the stories it tells.

So if your looking for an ACTUAL addition to the Lion King series this isn't really it, but if you just want to see your favorite characters and then some this will fill in those holes for you. (Remember this is the opening to a tv series currently on Disney and Disney Jr., so for the rest of the story you will have to tune in or buy the series once it goes to DVD/Blu Ray)

My son is obsessed with this movie. The music is very catchy and I even catch myself singing a long with the music with my son. The hyena song is the best though. It is very cute to watch my four year old sing with the hyena's and then their mock laughing. I have a one year daughter who loves the music as well. When the music comes on, she will stop what she is doing and bounce up and down with the music. A very well made movie for our little ones.

Happy to see lions again!

I had watched the debut of this movie on Disney Junior. Being an adult fan of The Lion King, I can say that it's definitely made for kids. The movie is supposed to be the opening to The Lion Guard show. It is not very long at all. The timeline is off and the characters you know and love look the same, but have different personalities because the focus is not on them. It's on Kion, the second born of Simba and Nala.The animation could be better. (It is getting better in the series.) However, the story is cute and I am just happy they brought The Lion King back in any form at all.

My daughter was obsessed with the original Lion King, but once watching this it's become her new favorite! It's 45 minutes long opposed to some movies which I love since we limit TV time. The songs are very catchy and cute (and not the least bit annoying). I would definitely recommend this to others!

Careful the left might see this title as too masculine and cancel Simba replacing him with a lesbian cougar 😂
