I'm excited to see it. And I am happy that Kiara is there, still as a cub since I don't like her adult form. And I'm glad the hyenas appear since in Simba's Pride was a huge disappointment to me, that the hyenas wasn't there. It's a shame Shenzi, Banzai and Ed is not mentioned though... And Tiifu looks interesting.

However, there are few things in the TLG that bothers me:

The animation, I've seen a comparison of Kion and Simba (from TLK) running, Kion's legs don't stretch out and looks stiff compared to Simba's. The original movie had better animation and more effort in my opinion. If you might have noticed the difference?

Second, Simba's design looks weird and still portrayed to be a jerk as he was from Simba's pride.

You have to take into consideration the time between the first movie and this series... and also the undeniable fact that tv series will never put in nearly a quarter amount of effort that a movie did. Animated movies take years. From the planning, researching, writing, revision, recording, and finally animating via computer and hand drawings, it took around 6 years to make since it came out in 1994 but ideas started being thrown around in 1988. The lion guard started announcements back in 2014, but you know they were already in the animation stage there. TV shows don't generally take as long or else there would be no purpose to make them. You know if this series took the same amount of time and skill, plus all the animators learning the original style 100%, it would take much, MUCH longer and thus at this point, probably not even worth it. They're playing off of the back end of Frozen since Frozen is so similar to TLK.

I'm extremely pumped about this.

One thing I'm not understanding in the fandom are some of the questions. Especially, the whole were was kion during the second movie. I can't believe people are forgetting there have been so many fan-comics, fan fictions explaining  what happened during scar's reign, and we never saw that in the original. There are plenty of backstories on different characters and it will show why they weren't in the movie at that time and point. How is it bad disney does it, and fan community does it's absolutely brilliant. Fickle bunch I tell you. Another thing the whole Kion and Kiara age wasn't it in the original script she had a sibling? So what's the issue that she has one now. Then there was some complaint about this lion mark on his shoulder...Defining it as magic. I'm not sure I would call it magic necessarily, maybe to some, but couldn't it be spiritual. Anyway, thanks for the updates!

Would you send a letter to Walt Disney Animation Studios 500 S. Buena Vista Street Burbank, CA. 91521 to fix it because you see, Kiara is actually an adult and Eden Sonja Jane Riegel 34 years old which is why she an adult too?

I used that exact example earlier! I said something like how people just drooled and rolled in the idea that Kopa and Kiara were the same age but now that Kion and Kiara are seemingly the same age it's just utter shit. I mean, it's one thing to not be excited and such, but some questions are just... silly depending on who is saying them. I'm tired of being angry at movies and shows (and yet here I am, bitching to my cousin about the censorship in the tokyo ghoul boxse)

And yeah, I see the roar as spiritual because it comes from the lions above (I don't know exactly how it works, but my theory at this moment is that the kings of the past send their spirits through him and a roar erupts from him. I don't think he can always use it. I think an overpowering secondary character in the royal line shouldn't have that much power over his to be queen, but... if it is set up well I'll be okay. I mean, I'm happy we're getting anything, and it's not like we won't dissect things from this and put it into our head canons lol. I think some people are actively getting worked up over nothing. They don't have to accept it as canon, honestly. I mean people are still trying to get other people to think Kopa is canon.

I AM SO PUMPED.

Also, a word on the sequel.  From what I understand it wasn't even from the same creators?  I mean, it was one of those straight-to-video things wasn't it?  With Disney Channel animators and things?

If anything it's just a tier higher than the original Kopa books and was more of a way to make more money off of a popular film.  Sure, it had the same luck as The Hunchback's sequel where most of the voice actors returned to their original roles but... the same voices don't exactly mean much.

TLK2 did have a great concept, but the way I see it, just because it was branded and recognized by Disney didn't necessarily make it Word of God.  The Lion Guard's animators are still taking concepts from the old sequel rather than trashing it completely.  Sure it's not perfect, but I'm happy to see that Kiara wasn't ignored as a character.

Rant over |D

I believe the sequel was made by a disney studio in..... Australia? To many, anything past the original is semi-canon, whereas people such as myself feel like anything that remains in sequence of the source material to be official canon material. As I see it, Simba's pride was... and The Lion Guard is being pushed heavily in the media for follows to accept, whereas 6NA is just a whisper in the wind and 99% of TLK fans would have never known about it had the internet not led us to the 3 people who knew about it lol. Now, 1.5 is tricky because it was seriously pushed as a parody. I mean hell Timon and Pumba are watching it on a big screen. Basically... if it was animated (since TLK's original source material is a Disney movie), any serious animation follows suit. At the least, it is the timeline and material Disney wants you to know the most. 1.5 and the T&P show are clear parodies that make fun of the events of the series (Pumba farting at Simba's presentation, asking Shenzi to marry him, the purple tiger in T&P, etc)

SP is, and always will be TLK's official sequel. Because TLG is a TV series, I can see how it can be looked at as semi-canon. But at the very least, it is 10 times more canon than any comic or book.

Thanks for posting the screen Shots! Kion is cute and I like him a lot :) Simba is being harsh because I suppose he's being fearful of any change to tradition. Yeah, it must of been a horrible flashback for Simba seeing Kiara like that.

I'm still a bit dissapointed that Kion is in fact  Kopa, just with a different name. It means that all fanon theories about Kopa are destroyed.
And I don't see how TLG fits in  with the SP's plot. Where was Kion while Kiara's presentation, while her first hunt...In the jungle with friends?.. And then he returned and:hello, Kovu.

Anyahs Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't see why it matters whether fanon theories are destroyed or not. It's not Disney's job to make sure every fanon theory out there is magically saved from canon. And it's not like people can't still continue with fanon anyways. I am, it's not stopping me from making Kion the much younger brother of Kiara, it's not stopping people from using Kopa, or anything of the sort. They're fanon for a reason, because they're fan made and don't follow Disneys canon. It's hilarious to see people make Kopa and Kiara the same age (same as Kiara and Kion here) and people call it brilliant in comics or fan theories, but when Disney does it all of a sudden it's "OMG THIS DOESNT FIT?! HOW DOES THIS WORK!? FANNNOOON" about 50% is the "Where was Kion?" crowd and the rest is "IT SHOULD BE KOPA BAW"

Where was Zira during Simba's return? And the other outlanders? Where was Kovu, Vitani, and Nuka? Why didn't Simba know about Zira's cubs if he personally exiled them? Where did Sarabi and Sarafina go? I mean, sure, we can cry about Kion's missing absence all we want, but if people can blindly accept Zira and her crew being MIA in movie 1, there's not reason people can't just assume Kion was just out of the picture at the time of the movie as well. 
the fact is, every time a sequel comes out, they add characters who were seemingly missing from the previous one. It happens in every series ever.

Something that's been bothering me for awhile now but wouldn't Kion's design sorta tip it's hat to semi-canon and fan theories?
As far as we know, canon wise and those mentioned, only Zira (and Nuka in certain shots) had those types of ears.

I wondered that myself when his deign first showed up, but after seeing how much scrapped story ideas from Simba's pride is in this (The brother, the hyenas) It made me look back at other old content and I think Kion is more of a nod to Concept Simba: Red hair tuft, brown nose, ear trim on top of ear, spotting on legs... Sure, we could also say he's got some Kopa in him to appease some people but really, I think it's all Simba

Tiifu is the little cub in the image with Simba and Nala. Her role hasn't been said, just that she's a lioness cub. She could be Kiara and Kion's sister, or just their friend.

PTSD sucks, I had (have) it so bad after my car accident and certain family deaths. It just messes with you so much, and although they probably won't go deep into it, it would definitely explain why Simba is so protective of her
