Disney has new releases featuring LEGO Star Wars and The Lion Guard

Since winter is apparently never-ending this year in Ottawa, it’s nice to have some new movies to watch when it’s not nice enough to play outside, and the latest releases from Walt Disney Studios Canada do not disappoint!


Available on DVD, March 1

The fun begins following the victory celebration in the Ewok village on Endor, at the end of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. R2-D2 and C-3PO have gathered to regale Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca and the other Rebels with the tales of their adventures that led to the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. An accidental kidnapping occurs while the droids are reminiscing, and suddenly you’re taken on a new journey that leads to the retelling of the entire Star Wars saga, as told by R2-D2 and C-3PO! It’s hilarious and playful, packed with all your favorite interlocking characters. LEGO® STAR WARS™: DROID TALES is intergalactic thrills for the whole family!

I’m saving this DVD for Rowan’s 5th birthday in a couple of weeks, because she absolutely loves LEGO STAR WARS. I wasn’t aware that this series was airing on television (hazard of using our PVR and On Demand too much, we never really watch commercials or check the schedule to see what is new) so I’m very happy to have the 5 episodes on DVD. The bonus trading cards that come with it are sure to be a huge hit!

Available on DVD, February 23
Meet Kion, second-born cub of Simba and Nala, as he assumes the role of leader of “The Lion Guard,” an elite team of animals tasked with preserving the Pride Lands. Follow him as he assembles a group of unlikely heroes: Bunga the honey badger, Fuli the cheetah, Beshte the hippo and Ono the egret. Join them on a thrilling adventure as they use their unique abilities to defend the Pride Lands from predators and maintain balance within the Circle of Life. Bursting with humor, music, beloved characters and heart, The Lion Guard: Return Of The Roar is a must-own for the entire family!
We watched this as a family last night and both of my daughters were completely engrossed. There were fun songs, suspense, lots of laughs, characters that were familiar friends and new characters to love. They are both excited to watch the new series on Disney Junior now!
