Goofs

In the Lion king 2: Simba's pride, Kiara didn't want to be a princess and didn't know what to do with her life. In the Lion Guard: return of the roar, she absolutely wanted to be a princess,and even teased Kion about being heir to the throne. She said to Kion," At least I know what I want to do with my life."

Quotes

Timon: Don't worry, ladies. Me and Pumbaa have everything under control.
Pumbaa: Timon's right. We used to help Simba get his claws out of logs all the time.
Kiara: And you're sure about this?
Timon: Sure I'm sure. If it weren't for us, your dad would still be stuck to a tree somewhere.

Not as Expected
4 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

As a fan of Lion King, I am very disappointed. First off this movie is only 44 minutes. A movie is normally an hour. The new voices for the characters are horrible. Rob Lowe for Simba was a horrible choice. This film looks somewhat low budget. They could have at least kept the same voice actors and actresses from the previous movies. I think there should have been a different plot instead making it seem like Simba is against a different animal crew. The hyenas even look different. They don't look normal at all. What I don't understand is how and when did lion came about Because lion king 2 Kiara was a cub and grew up to be an adult and where was Kion? He was not in the second one. So for him to become a leader in the lion guard shouldn't he be an older adult lion? The plot is most definitely weird and you can not pinpoint where the time line is being held. This is not a movie I will recommend for anyone to see. I could not enjoyed it as much as I did with the first two Lion Kings. I'm pretty sure children will enjoy it especially if they are not familiar with the originals.
