Time once again to save the Pride Lands! Disney's epic adventure The Lion King continues with Simba and Nala's second-born cub, Kion, and his Lion Guard team as they continue on adventures together throughout the Pride Lands! Follow our group of unlikely heroes: Bunga the honey badger, Fuli the cheetah, Beshte the hippo and Ono the egret.
After using the Roar of the Elders in anger, Kion unwittingly summons the Pride Lands' greatest villain, Scar. David Oyelowo ("Selma") guest stars as Scar and Landry Bender (Disney Channel's "Best Friends Whenever") guest stars as Makini, Rafiki's spirited young mandrill apprentice. Christian Slater (Disney XD's "Milo Murphy's Law") recurs as Ushari the snake.
Join this heroic band as they use their unique abilities to protect the Pride Lands and maintain the Circle of Life. As King Mufasa said," Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope." Packed with laughs, music, beloved characters and heart, The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar is a must-own for the entire family!
Usually we - and retailers! - get the heads-up from a studio about any DVD release at 60 to 90 days in advance. But the folks at Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment surprised us with a post-New-Year's-Day announcement that on January 9th
- next Tuesday! - they will release The Lion Guard - Vol 2: The Rise of Scar
on DVD. This is a single-disc title expected to cost $19.99 SRP, and cover art is below. There's also an Amazon.com button link, but they haven't begun accepting pre-orders as of this writing (remember, this is a surprise to them, too!). Check back, though, and they ought to begin taking order soon.
