The Lion Guard Magazine (some issues also known as Disney Presents The Lion Guard in the UK) was a monthly magazine based on The Lion Guard that has been released in several countries.
Each issue consists of 32 pages which include comics, various African animal facts, pull-out games, posters and puzzles all based on The Lion Guard and its main members. Some of the content can vary between countries, though the majority is the same.
The comics in the magazine are interactive and unique, encouraging readers to choose a path which affects the outcome of the story.
A free Lion Guard related gift is also attached to each magazine, which also vary between countries.

- In the UK version of the magazine (Disney Presents Issue 98), Makuu's name is misspelled 'Makku' in both the comic and the preview for the next issue. In Disney Presents Issue 99, his name is misspelled again.
- Issue one of the magazine was originally going to be issue 100 of the Disney Presents series. It was to come with a camera as opposed to a blind bag and puzzle set. This wound up being the next issue's free gift instead.
- On the cover of Disney Presents The Lion Guard #99, Fuli's Mark of the Guard is missing.
- In issue two, Zuri is mistakenly spelled as 'Zuru'.
- The preview for Issue sixteen reads 21st Sept - 18th October 2017 on the ISBN code, meaning the decision to change the magazine to a bi-monthly magazine was possibly a late one.
- The Lion Guard Magazine is the only media to release the comics. France did, however, release a few of them in a compilation book.
- The France version of the magazine (la garde du roi lion) got canceled after Magazine 7 was published. Strangely in the last issue there was no information about the canceling and the preview corner showing the cover of the next issue got replaced with cut out memory cards of la garde du roi lion.
