age 5+

it's ok Not as great as the orignal movies though.

This is the number one thing I hate about it Scar being a leader of a Lion Guard is just bull nonsence to me should not have even been for this story and all the other bull stuff that does not follow The Lion King movies much at all Kiara and Kovu should be king and queen by now. The music is cool I like the episodes and movies but does nonsence have to be in it like Scar A lion guard leader Bruh!
