Till the pride lands end lion guard defends

lion guard is not as bad as people are making it yes I agree that the guard not letting other predators eat is wrong especially when there hunting in there territory but with what happened when scar ruled and since they don’t care about the circle of life you can never be too careful the songs are good and catchy maybe a bit too catchy in it and even though it a Disney junior show in season 3 it had the first death ever in Disney junior history so it darker than the other shows but it still for kids
