Given this is a Disney Junior show, The Lion Guard isn’t my kind of series, obviously this is geared toward younger viewers but I would guess their parents will find it to be enjoyable enough.

THE SEASON


Defend the Pride Lands with Kion (MAX CHARLES) and his courageous team in Disney’s adventure series based on the legacy of The Lion King. You’ll run like the wind, move mountains and save the day with these five brave friends as they summon their inner powers and help protect the Circle of Life.

This single-disc set comes with only 6 of the 19 episodes of The Lion Guard’s first season and oddly enough, not even in order and this doesn’t even include the first episode! The ones included are:

  1. Fuli’s New Family
  2. Bunga the Wise
  3. Eye of the Beholder
  4. Follow That Hippo
  5. The Search for Utamu
  6. Never Judge a Hyena by its Spots

Now, does that order make any sense? Not to me however this isn’t the show meant for a 36 year old but instead those with young kids who will probably enjoy the bright colors and innocent and simple episode storylines and I suppose their parents will find it passable for Disney Junior programming.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


This release comes with a glossy and embossed slip cover. No features were included, but inside is a nifty necklace.

 

VIDEO – 3.75/5, AUDIO – 3.5/5


The Lion Guard: Unleash the Power is presented with a 16×9 enhanced picture and it’s pretty bright. Although the animation isn’t anything special, does at least look good.

Each episode comes with a basic but OK Dolby Digital 2.0 track.

OVERALL – 2.5/5


Overall, given this is a Disney Junior show, The Lion Guard isn’t my kind of series, obviously this is geared toward younger viewers but I would guess their parents will find it to be enjoyable enough. The DVD released by Disney offers good video and audio transfers but unfortunately no features were included.
