Preview of the Brand New Series The Lion Guard

2 April 2016, Malaysia: The epic storytelling of Disney’s “The Lion King” continues with “The Lion Guard”, a brand-new television series premiering 17 April, 8.30am on Disney Channel (Astro Channel 615) in Malaysia. The series follows Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, as he assumes the role of leader of The Lion Guard, a team of animals tasked with preserving the Pride Lands.

I am invited to attend the preview of “The Lion Guard” at Marmalade Café, Level 1, Bangsar Village 2 at 2nd April 2016. There are a lot of parents attending the events with their kids. The Marmalade Cafe are decorated with full of baloons. It is really a nice place to hold event.

The event started with the Art & Crafts session where all the kids were allowed to create a Lion Guard mask and coloring the Lion Guard pictures.

There is a photo wall where all the kids were allowed to take photo with. My daughter also took a picture there.

After that, the emcee gave a brief introduction about the series. Kids are chosen to perform “The Lion Guard Roar” Challenge. The kids enjoy it so much.

Now the time come to enjoy Disney’s “The Lion Guard” Screening. We are the first to watch it before it show on the TV.  Feel free to enjoy the show every Sunday 8.30am on Disney Channel (Astro Channel 615) start from 17 April 2016 onward with your kids.

After the screening, it was a quiz session for the kids to answer about the series. All the kids are desperate to take part in order to win The Lion Guard merchandise.

Last but not least we enjoy the preview and enjoy the lunch at Mermalade Café. The Café have special playing area for the kids and really caring the food served for the kids.

Thanks for the goodies and Thanks Jessica for the invitation. My family enjoy it so much.
