20 years ago this year, Disney released the animated film The Lion King in theaters and captured the hearts of young and old worldwide.

Today we learn that Disney will be releasing a new animated movie and series sequel to The Lion King on Disney Junior next year. Focusing on the second born cub of Simba and Nala, The Lion Guard will introduce to the world a new Disney character named Kimbo.

Hoping for "a fruitful working relationship"
Prince has announced today that he is readying the release of a new album with his new band 3rd Eye Girl. He is also announcing that he has re-teamed with his former record label Warner Bros. Records for a new deal that will provide fans the opportunity to have access to “long-awaited, previously unheard music”. As you may know, Prince and WBR enjoyed a long, successful relationship from the late 70′s until the early 90′s … until things soured between the two. Prince was unhappy with his WB contract, WB wouldn’t release him from that contract and Prince changed his name to O(+> and started writing the word SLAVE on his face in an effort to break free from WB Records. Now, all these years later, Prince and WBR have apparently kissed and made up … and are ready to unleash both new and old music on the world. More »
