Due to his death, Scar makes no physical appearance in The Lion Guard, though he appears on a wall mural is heavily mentioned and alluded to throughout the events that unfold.
A bit more of Scar's backstory is also revealed in Return of the Roar. As part of tradition to all second born children of the Lion King, Scar, when he was younger, served as leader of the Lion Guard; a team of lions who would protect the Pride Lands and the Circle of Life, having had a power called the "Roar of the Elders," which, when used, would cause the previous Kings of the Pride Lands to roar along with him. However, the power went to Scar's head and he vainly believed that with this power, he should be king instead of Mufasa. But when the rest of the Lion Guard refused to help him overthrow Mufasa, Scar furiously used his Roar of the Elders to destroy them. Due to using his powers for evil, Scar lost his power completely and descended into depression, becoming shriveled and horrible. This may have been why he needed the hyenas in the first place.
Simba's second born son, Kion, is told of this story, and desperately makes an effort to refrain from using his powers for evil, and becoming a dark figure in the vain of his great-uncle.
Scar will make an appearance in the upcoming special, The Rise of Scar as a spirit. He will be voiced by David Oyelowo. Scar will appear in the flames of a volcano after Kion unwittingly summons him by using the Roar of the Elders in anger.
