Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The high standards set by The Lion King are maintained in this collection, which relies on strong characters, charming stories, delightful music, and solid animation. The Lion Guard: Unleash the Power has something for everyone -- enough action for kids who like to see their cartoon buddies get in and out of trouble; lots of comedy springing from the character of the players rather than from silly situations; and messages about living life thoughtfully and honestly, teachable moments that should gently resonate with young viewers. Each tale is scored with the familiar, unique Lion King melodies, and each contains an original song related to the story. Highly recommended, though even the youngest viewers should be comfortable with cartoon jeopardy.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
