    Describing this series as The Lion King meets The Avengers sounds both hilarious and awesome to the point where I instantly want to watch it. Granted, part of it is also because of my immense fondness for The Lion King in general, but describing the series like that works in attracting attention, even though it was probably to get people excited by bringing up something as popular and successful as The Avengers.

    Klon's design also kind of reminds me of Kopa from those Lion King books I heard about a couple of years ago. At least there is a bit more effort here to make him not look so much as a young Simba with a bit more of a mane. The paw mark on his arm is a pretty nice touch too. I'm going to guess that this takes place in its own continuity given that Klon is mentioned and is the lead character, but Kiara is not. Either that or they could say that Simba and Nala had another cub sometime after the events of the sequel.

    If Kiara and Kovu aren't in this series, I swear to God...

    Looks to have very high quality animation. A lot higher than I would've expected. Wonder how it'll look in motion.

    It would be nice to see them at least get guest appearances every once in awhile.

    Is there really any expectation of anything more than the standard "Stare at the screen as kids figure out 'difficult' things" like where the red tree can possibly be? Calling it Lion King meets the Avengers seems to be pumping it up as something it will unlikely be. Especially not on a channel for pre-schoolers.

    Disney Junior seems to be more about morality stories than Dora the Explorer-style education.

    I have to wonder why Disney created a new character for the lead role instead of just re-using Kiara and/or Kovu, and describing The Lion Guard as being "The Lion King Meets The Avengers" sounds like little more than a ploy to get kids to tune in. I'm honestly not expecting this series to be anything along those lines.

    They probably wanted to use a new younger character instead of re-using characters from a sequel that's over ten years old as the show's main character to attract more attention.

    Disney churns out all those cheapquels and disregards the characters like the cheap products they are. Huh.

    Anyhoo, hearing them mention Avengers makes me wish they'd just take a Marvel property and just make a preschool show based on it. Boys would eat it up like crazy.

    I was just about to post the topic. I like the animation. The plot sounds more like Kimba the White Lion branded with Disney. The plot of Kimba was to unite the people and animals in harmony and peace. They'll probably go into details about what they have to save the savannah from but that was one of my first impressions I got from this. I would like to think that Kiara and Kovu will make a guest appearance whether in cub or adult form. However,since this is another cub entirely, I would think Disney just made an AU for this show.

    ^At least they put somewhat of a story in it. It looks like an interesting project. For the record they might be able to make something if they dig up TLK 2 to promote toys.

    Same here. I really hope and Kiara appears as the much older sister of Kion.

    Disney isn't going to bother making a new Fantastic Four series, preschool or otherwise, as long as 20th Century Fox holds the movie rights to those characters.

    That's basically what the FOX movie is.
