The Lion Guard: Unleash The Power DVD Review

The Lion Guard is a somewhat surprisingly good show airing on Disney Junior, and the story of Kion and his friends continues with a new DVD release The Lion Guard: Unleash the Power.

The release is the first collection of episodes available on DVD, and it’s not only a good selection because these are episodes that focus on the individual members of the Guard, but because these are some of the series’ most rewatchable efforts.

It was meant to be a sports and recreation area that would have a mall, theater, bowling and more (it even had an indoor ski slope) but after a few bankruptcies, permits, and other issues it's sat as a ridiculous eyesore for all to see driving on the NJ Turnpike.
