There's Going to Be a New 'Lion King' Movie!

The story follows Simba and Nala's son, Kion.

Start practicing your roars, because Simba and Nala are back. Disney just announced that there's going to be a new Lion King movie coming to your TV screen.

The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar will follow Simba and Nala's second-born son, Kion, who's responsible for leading the Lion Guard, which is sort of the military for the Pride Lands. He rounds up a group of his friends, which include a honey badger, an egret, a cheetah, and a hippo, to solve problems in the kingdom.

Disney has rounded up a great cast of voice actors to play all your favorite characters. Rob Lowe and Gabrielle Union play grown-up Simba and Nala, and James Earl Jones and Ernie Sabella are back as Mufasa and Pumbaa.

The movie airs on Disney Junior, which means that it's aired towards slightly younger kids than the original. The show even asked experts at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park to make sure the characters were realistic. But even though it's (ew) "educational," it looks like adorable fun. The Lion Guard will then become a TV series on the Disney channel, airing early next year.

Take a look at a clip featuring Kion and a few familiar hyenas:
