Coming to Disney DVD in February 2016, “The Lion King” continues as you join Simba and Nala’s second-born cub, Kion, and the adventurous Lion Guard team that he leads. Joining Kion are an unusual group of unlikely heroes: Bunga the honey badger, Fuli the cheetah, Beshte the hippo and Ono the egret. Together, they use their unique abilities to defend the Pride Lands from predators and maintain balance within the Circle of Life. Bursting with humor, music, beloved characters and heart, “The Lion Guard: Return Of The Roar” is a must-own for any “Lion King” fans! The voice cast includes James Earl Jones and Ernie Sabella reprising their roles from “The Lion King” as Mufasa and Pumbaa, respectively; Rob Lowe (“The Grinder”) as Simba and Gabrielle Union (“Being Mary Jane”) as Nala; Max Charles (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) stars as Kion; Joshua Rush (“The Adventures of Puss in Boots”) as Bunga; Atticus Shaffer (“The Middle”) as Ono; Diamond White (“Sofia the First”) as Fuli; and Dusan Brown (“Blaze and the Monster Machines”) as Beshte.
