Well, at least you gave it a chance and disliked it instead of mindlessly bashing it without having seen it.

Admittedly, the 'return of the roar' is weak compared to a few of the episodes out.

Does anyone else find it funny how only 80 movie stars get the privilege of voicing Simba? Matthew Broderick, Rob Lowe... it'll be Charlie Sheen next :lol:

Nah, wait, he has tiger blood!

Anyway, I feel like the majority of the hatebase for TLG is made up of those who worship TLK 2, or if not worship, at least consider it to be a lot better than the first. It's interfering with their canon, regarding it as having never even happened. I suppose the mere thought of that makes them so uncomfortable they can't stand to even give TLG a chance. If they do, they might see that it's actually harmless (how shocking, a kid's show is harmless!) and really isn't doing anything to hurt TLK 2's canon... it's just something that is yet to be explained.

and I was told that I think Disney is trying to shy away from the Dark side of adventure to give children a better example of being less violent, but I say a little more violence is good cause it can be a god example of never giving up and fighting for the greater good in the world, wish they could have raised the age level on it a little more like the original film but almost every TLK fan wished that....too late :oops: :sad:

I don't particularly like The Lion Guard. Does it not make me a TLK fan? I don't think so, personally. Just as I don't hold it against TLG fans and claim that they cannot be true TLK fans either.

I totally agree about what you said gothprincesskiara. You couldn't have said it any better. Take it for what it is. Nobody needs to be a TLG hater.
Personally, I like TLG! :kiongrin:

No True Scotsman fallacies don't help anyone.

Just because someone doesn't like TLG doesn't make them less of a fan than someone who does. It's almost offensive that someone would think so to be honest.

I actually like Kion I see a lot of potential in his character unfortunately it's the show I have a problem with the pilot was okay but still disappointing some episodes were better than others but still not great. Despite what we were told it being a show for preschoolers is what hurts it, the morals are good but also way too blunt, the song between Kion and Jasiri was absolutely out of a kids show it's the kind of the song I would expect to hear on Nick junior. It just doesn't have the depth of the movies which were rated G. There was no need to tone anything down.

I like Kion but I feel he can't thrive as a character in a show aimed at preschoolers, Lion King doesn't belong there, at least in my opinion it doesn't.

If you like it cool good for you does it make you less of a LK fan of course not, nor does it make those who feel the opposite we're all fans.
