The Lion Guard Adventure Opens at Animal KingdomThe Lion Guard Adventure Opens at Animal Kingdom
February 08, 2016
Animal experts from Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park help ensure script accuracy with Disney Junior's new program, "The Lion Guard." And then they work on the tail end of the production - promotion of the finished product - with an activity inside the park. The Lion Guard Adventure debuted Sunday, and we were there to check it out.

Even though my daughter is no longer in the target age range of 2 to 7 years for the Disney Junior network, she still is interested in "The Lion Guard" and its presence at Animal Kingdom. After all, the show is a spinoff from the very popular 1994 animated movie, "The Lion King." The franchise has had several related stories since its introduction more than two decades ago. Most recently, it has been continued with a one-hour movie, "The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar," on Nov. 22, 2015, and then the Disney Junior series began on Jan. 15.
