No, I don't expect anything that drastic, but they did just introduce Rani. We can't really claim, "Oh Disney is following real lions" because well real lions don't do hardly anything that anthro lions do except maybe drink water and run. There's nothing wrong with being invested in a show, I have always been highly invested in the lion king. If they wanted a love interest for Kion that was strictly a lion please don't throw around Fuli hints like throwing stars. Tifi and Zuri were shown as Kiara's friends, if you wanted to stick to that then well, you could have gone that route. Rani needed more time she was literally just thrown in there, in my personal opinion.

I don't consider Simba and Nala as too fast since they actually did know each other as cubs. Yes, it would be nice if there had a been a bit more time, but hey it's one movie, at least they had some background. It would have been nice even to see Kion with Vitani, but I knew that would be far-fetched. I am a heavy Lion King fan and tend to take my ships and shows seriously. I usually stay away from ships which are so out there that there is no snowball chance in the Arizona desert (such as most Harry Potter ships). However, Fuli and Kion was not a snowball ship. They were friends, he trusted her, she trusted him there was even dare I say it , flirty moments? I see nothing wrong with cross-species shipping, although the nice thing might have been leaving Kion mateless so fans can fill in the blank. Why leave poor Vitani in the cold anyway?

if you really think the relationship beetween kion and rani is rushed and out of nowhere you've just watched the wrong show probably or you're totally blinded by the roaring fire of your crackship turning into ash, one of the two, no other explanations

I think the story arc of Kion and Rani is like most real human relationships, first you meet a stranger who disgusts you and you attack that person (mostly verbally instead of physically) and after some time, you have to work together on a project (protecting the tree of life) and then choose to stay truth to one and other.

Well, I will agree to disagree. I like Rani as an individual character and I like Kion as well. Just not my cup of tea. I would like to extend my apologies to those I offended for my getting a little hot under the collar. I am a devoted fan and shipping tends to be one of those things that I really enjoy. Most of my ships have worked, but I have been wrong. In the case of Digimon wrong in all but one case, but I digress! So, hopefully you will all forgive me for my rashness and raw emotions? I did enjoy a lot about the season including the development of the characters (my cable was weird and had them out of order). I don't want to spoil too much since not everyone has seen the episodes yet, but I do enjoy many of the characters in the night pride and I like their call quite a bit as it contrasts nicely with the guard. I like seeing the guard mature and make some mistakes as well including Kion using the roar in anger.

Figured I'd share my thoughts on this for anyone who cares. While I have never been a very big fan of "The Lion Guard" I feel it got considerably better in season three. The animation definitely improved, the story was interesting enough and there was some good character development. Nice to see them all aged up a bit, too. I think part of the reason I enjoyed this last season more was that, for the most part, it felt kind of disconnected from the actual "Lion King" universe. To view it as it's own thing: a young lion with magical powers and his group of friends on a quest to find the Tree of Life... well, it ain't too bad. But overall I still have trouble seeing it work with the canon LK world. It's way too over-the-top to be believable for me -- and why on earth did Kion do what he did to Pride Rock?? That was just kinda... dumb.

I really didn't like what they did to Scar in this show and was extremely happy to leave that plot behind. Also, I do not buy the "Scar got his scar from a snake bite and the venom made him eviiiil!" theory for a second. Nope. Even the water buffalo story from TLK6NA makes more sense than that -- and that never made any sense either. I still think Mufasa did it. Fight me. Anyways! All the different biomes existing together around the Tree of Life really made no sense... penguins and hippos, oh my! But you know what? It kinda reminded me of how I used to "role play" with my toys when I was a kid. The crossovers in my childhood games were insane. So, eh. I can forgive that -- and again, when I view TLG as it's own thing: a cartoon about animals and magic, I find it to be more enjoyable.

Rani and the Night Pride were interesting. Best new character in my opinion was Azaad, cheetahs are my favorite big cat and he actually looks more like one than Fuli does. Plus, speaking in third person is always fun. I also love that Janja got a redemption arc, that was pretty cool. I'm a sucker for bad guys switching sides or showing "shades of gray", so to speak. All the shipping stuff... eh. Not my thing, but whatever. Kion and Rani's song was actually really good, I will say that! Vitani and her new Lion Guard... I wanna love it because Vitani is my favorite character from Simba's Pride, but now she has a super-powered magical roar and as I've already explained I'm still uncomfortable with the whole "Lion King meets Avengers" thing, haha. But it is what it is. The attempt to tie up loose ends with the sequel wasn't bad. It was nice to see Kovu again, even if Kiara looked too young in comparison. I know it's just this show's style. I was sad they didn't say anything about Nuka at the end though. I always felt so sorry for him; it would've been nice to have Kovu and Vitani at least mention their brother. That poor derp. :nukasad:

On a side note I adore the tigers from the Tree of life. Can anyone make an avatar or banner for me?
