The epic storytelling of Disney’s “The Lion King” continues with “The
Lion Guard: Return of the Roar,” a primetime television movie event
premiering in November on Disney Channel. The movie follows Kion, the
second-born cub of Simba and Nala, as he assumes the role of leader of
the Lion Guard, a team of animals tasked with preserving the Pride
Lands. The movie is a precursor to “The Lion Guard” television series,
premiering in early 2016.
“I’m a huge Lion King fan. I’m even saving up to adopt my own lion cub. Simba and Nala’s romance just brings me to tears and I get so jealous. One thing I learned and still hold onto today is that you always fall for your best friend. When I tell people that, they always judge me. I even lost the best friend I loved.”
It’s natural that Simba’s cubs would bear some resemblance to their grandparent’s. I personally think Kiara looks like she’d grow to look and act a lot like Sarabi. But I anted to look specifically at Kion because I see a lot of Mufasa in him. Here’s some comparison pictures:
Both of them are VERY heavy in the shoulders and chest. Simba has more of Sarabi’s body type as opposed to his dad’s. Both Kion and MUfasa are very muscular lions, a trait that I’ve only really seen this prominent in these two characters. Mufasa also seemed to pass on his bright red mane. Simba’s mane as an adult is a bit duller than both Mufasa and Kion’s, though yes it is still red.
I just also wanted to show these two pics for even more comparison. I just think that these two have a lot of similar traits physically and that makes me hope they’ll act similarly too.
