TLG in future Lion King properties.

If Disney decides to make a new Lion King media, whether it be a movie (not including another remake) or TV series, do you think The Lion Guard will be mentioned in them and part of their canon? Or will it simply be forgotten going forward as an under-performing show and erased from TLK's world?

From what I know The Lion Guard was pretty successful with not just kids but much older audiences.. and also from my understanding many old sources have been updated to include Kion as Simba's son and such. I do believe that they will be included in some sort of way in their official canon at this time. Maybe if The Lion Guard only lasted a season or something I would say probably not, but I see Disney keeping it in the canon.

I heard and read thar Disney has a new CEO, so maybe this will mean we get an answer if this new man decides to keep up the lion king universe.. since both Kiara and Kion are part of the tlk canon, they surely will appear in the future for sure!

I doubt any steps will be taken to remove or deny "The Lion Guard's" cannoicity. However with The Tree Of Life being so far away from The Pride Lands. I do Fear that Kion and everyone could be left out of any future "Lion King" projects. If anything Post Lion King 2 is done. I am sure Vitani's Lion Guard will be involved.

Disney does have a new CEO, but Bob Iger is still the Executive Manager. so he will still be making creative decisions. Whether that means the future of "The Lion Guard" is in his hands or CEO Bob Chapek's I do not know.

going back to this I just thought about something I noticed. I’m a local to WDW, and I’ve never seen any Lion Guard merchandise, not even with just Kion.

Most of the merchandise for Lion King resides in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and the only characters I’ve seen is Simba, Nala, Timon, and Pumbaa with shirts, bags, plush, now masks, etc. No other character. Even at Disney’s Hollywood Studios they have a Disney JR thing there, no LG characters. But they have pretty much every other Jr character.

Odd, but somehow not surprising. But likely has nothing to do with canon, as there is no Kiara/Kovu merch there either. Those stuff reside online.

they have limited space for merch at disneyworld and a billion ip's. sarabi has barely any merch and sarafina has almost none. Nala is usually relegated to plushes and the occasional pin.

TLK merch is mainly cub simba and timon + pumbaa because I guess that's what sells the most.

so a lack of merch at disneyworld means little unless a movie was a flop like home on the range or the black cauldron.
Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves back up again.
