Pride Landers Unite!


The Fall of Mizimu Grove

On the behalf of the royal family, I welcome our friend and ally, Queen Dhahabu!

"The Queen's Visit" is the twenty-seventh episode of Season 2 of The Lion Guard.  It premiered on February 18, 2019.


"After being threatened by Scar’s attacks, Queen Dhahabu asks Fuli, Tiifu and Zuri to become her permanent personal guards. Renée Elise Goldsberry (Broadway’s “Hamilton”) returns as Queen Dhahabu. Rico Rodriguez (“Modern Family”) and Raini Rodriguez (“Austin & Ally”) return as zebra siblings Raha and Starahe, respectively."[1] David Oyelowo (Selma) and Ana Gasteyer (ABC's The Goldbergs) recur as Scar and Reirei, respectively.


Dhahabu, the queen of the Back Lands, arrives in the Pride Lands to discuss a water treaty between the kingdoms ("Prance With Me"). After meeting with Simba atop Pride Rock, Dhahabu is escorted on a tour around the kingdom by Kiara, Tiifu, and Zuri. The Lion Guard tags along at Dhahabu's insistence. Unbeknownst to the group, Scar's lackeys, Shupavu and Njano, spy on the proceedings.

Dhahabu sings "Prance With Me" as she arrives in the Pride Lands to renew a water treaty

In the middle of the tour, a bolt of dry lightning ignites the plains, endangering Dhahabu. While Kiara, Tiifu, and Zuri manage to escape, Dhahabu hesitates, and Fuli is forced to shout at her to jolt her out of her panic. Together, the two jump over the fire to safety, and the rest of the Lion Guard successfully puts out the fire.

After the rescue, Dhahabu praises Fuli for her bravery and Tiifu and Zuri for remaining at her side throughout the ordeal, and insists that the three of them stay with her for the remainder of her visit. Though Fuli is reluctant to leave the Lion Guard, Kion reminds her that they must appease Dhahabu for the sake of the treaty, and she reluctantly agrees.

Fuli saves Dhahabu from a fire

Meanwhile, in the Outlands, Shupavu and Njano inform Scar of Dhahabu's visit to the Pride Lands. Scar schemes to end the treaty between the two kingdoms and sends his jackal minions after Dhahabu.

Across the savanna, the Lion Guard runs into Dhahabu's assistants, Raha and Starehe, who are depressed that their queen has no need of them. Ono offers to find her for them and soon discovers that she is being set upon by the jackals. Together with Raha and Starehe, the Lion Guard rushes to the rescue and fights off the pack.

Raha and Starehe leap to the defense of their queen, Dhahabu

During the fight, Tiifu and Zuri cower behind Dhahabu, while Raha and Starehe fiercely fight off their queen's attackers. Dhahabu misinterprets the situation, believing that Tiifu and Zuri are her saviors, and appoints them to her "Queen's Guard" along with Fuli. Much to the Lion Guard's surprise, Raha and Starehe do not correct Dhahabu and instead let Tiifu and Zuri take the credit.

After the fight, Kion questions Raha and Starehe on their motivations, and they explain that Dhahabu keeps them around to be a positive influence. If they were to become her bodyguards, they would lose that illusion of happiness.

Dhahabu appoints Raha and Starehe to be her Queen's Guard in place of Fuli, Tiifu, and Zuri

Not long after, Dhahabu is freshening up in a water hole when the jackals attack again, this time with crocodile allies. Ono informs the Lion Guard of the predicament, and Raha and Starehe race off to defend their queen. This time, they fight in front of Dhahabu, who is incredulous at their skills.

After the fight, Dhahabu relieves Fuli, Tiifu, and Zuri of their duties and appoints Raha and Starehe in their stead. Together, the group returns to Pride Rock, where Dhahabu renews her water treaty with the Pride Landers.
