It's a shame that this glory couldn't go to Intrada, but assuming the price is right I will be picking up a good handful of these

Well there goes my hopes of Intrada putting it out complete. Still, this is promising...

I'm not intimately familiar with the score, but it looks nearly complete, if not complete. Frankly I'm surprised they were able to squeeze an extra 30 minutes out of it.

Sounds good to me! Realistically, I wondered whether this score might have been too costly to release by Intrada with the songs included, so it's nice to see this coming out on Disney. This is the only score in the list that really appeals to me. In particular, I note that there's no Mulan in that list... hmmm.


EDIT: Here's the amazon link if anyone's interested: http://www.amazon.com/Legacy-Collection-Lion-Various-Artists/dp/B00JQHOEAU/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1399403507&sr=1-1&keywords=lion+king+legacy

That's too bad about no Aladdin or Beauty and Beast, but I do look forward to these new releases.

This is amazing news. Disney should have been doing this years ago. Can't wait for these releases!

They seem to be focusing on milestone anniversaries (ending in 5s and 0s) - Beauty and the Beast's 25th is in 2016, and Aladdin's in 2017 smile

They should have started these things early, I don't want to wait that long.

This confirms what was said from the very beginning. Intrada deal covers scores not previously released on CD. So they were never going to do the 90's scores.

Will definitely pick these up -- and yes, here's hoping the program lasts a few years so we get plenty more along these lines!

Comparing this new release to the single CD 14-track 2003 "Special Edition" of THE LION KING, when you eliminate all of the songs that are on both, you have these additional tracks on the Legacy Collection:

Disc One

2) ‘Didn’t Your Mother Tell You Not to Play With Your Food’ Score
3) ‘We Are All Connected’ Score
4) ‘Hyenas in the Pride Land’ Score
6) ‘Elephant Graveyard’ Score
7) ‘I Was Just Trying to Be Brave’ Score
9) ‘Simba, It’s to Die For’ Score
10) ‘Stampede’ Score
11) ‘Mufasa Dies’ Score
12) If You Ever Come Back We’ll Kill You’ Score
13) ‘Bowling for Buzzards’ Score
15) ‘We Gotta Bone to Pick With You’ Score
16) ‘Kings of the Past’ Score
17) ‘Nala, Is It Really You?’ Score
19) ‘Remember Who You Are’ Score
20) ‘This Is My Home’ Score
21) ‘The Rightful King’ Score

Disc Two

2) ‘Warthog Rhapsody’ Performed by Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella
3) ‘We Are All Connected ‘Score Demo
4) ‘I Was Just Trying to Be Brave’ Score Demo
5) ‘Stampede’ Score Demo
6) ‘Mufasa Dies’ Score Demo
7) ‘This Is My Home’ Score Demo
8) ‘The Rightful King’ Score Demo
9) ‘Circle of Life’ Instrumental Demo

In addition to the songs, the Special Edition has 4 score tracks, which apparently are going by different names in the Legacy Collection:

7. This Land (02:53) (Instrumental)
8. ...To Die For (04:16) (Instrumental)
9. Under The Stars (03:43) (Instrumental)
10. King Of Pride Rock (05:57) (Instrumental)

The Special Edition also has the "Can You Feel The Love Tonight (Remix) (04:08)
performed by Elton John," which doesn't seem to be on the Legacy Collection.

The second CD of the Legacy Collection has one song ("Warthog Rhapsody"), which appeared on the 1995 Disney album Rhythm of the Pride Lands: Music Inspired by The Lion King. The balance of new material on the second CD is demo versions of seven tracks on the first CD.

Sounds very interesting, indeed.

From the tracklist it might look like it's actually quite complete. At least in number of tracks. It says 30 min. of previously unreleased score, so unless that means AT LEAST 30 minutes (and in reality closer to 35 minutes), I guess perhaps there's been some (short) edits here and there (?)!, and/or the score tracks fade with eachother, or the songs ... but hopefully not that.

The demo tracks also sounds very interesting, certainly the instrumental of Circle Of Life, among others... smile

The score tracks on the previous CD(s) are short edits and/or several cues put together.

The non-english versions of the CDs, also had one additional 4 min. score track called Hyenas.

I'm *very* happy with these releases, even though I'm not 100% certain right now if we'll get of HZ's score for THE LION KING.

The score portions that are/were available between US and international releases amount to 21 minutes. The recording sessions (?) that leaked last year are 56:30 in length (excluding all songs/demos). Below I'm trying to line up the new version with track times from the rec sessions:

2) ‘Didn’t Your Mother Tell You Not to Play With Your Food’: 2:13
3) ‘We Are All Connected’: 3:03
4) ‘Hyenas in the Pride Land’: 4:00
6) ‘Elephant Graveyard’: 4:47
7) ‘I Was Just Trying to Be Brave’: 2:16
9) ‘Simba, It’s to Die For’: 0:49?
10) ‘Stampede’: 3:26
11) ‘Mufasa Dies’: 3:29
12) If You Ever Come Back We’ll Kill You’: 2:11
13) ‘Bowling for Buzzards’: 1:09
15) ‘We Gotta Bone to Pick With You’: 1:14
16) ‘Kings of the Past’: 1:40
17) ‘Nala, Is It Really You?’: 4:17
19) ‘Remember Who You Are’: 7:53
20) ‘This Is My Home’: 2:29
21) ‘The Rightful King’: 11:43

The arrangement of tracks (split vs. mixed together) is likely to not be the same between the rec sessions and the new release, so the listing above should be taken with a pillar of salt. There's also the issue of the score having reportedly been slowed down for the soundtrack, but I don't know if this also goes for the sessions (or would go for the new release).

If we take the sessions as the complete score as it was heard in the movie (again, different mixes and demo versions not withstanding), there is about 35 minutes of unreleased score. Without any further information and because I tend to be pessimistic, the official statement of "30 minutes of previously unreleased score" would seem to imply that we might not get everything. That would be a small bummer, but I'm completely ecstatic, 20 years after TLK started my interest in and love for film music, to FINALLY have all the most important moments (Scar and Simba's Fight, Rafiki's realization that Simba is still alive, Simba waking up in the desert to Richard Harvey's gorgeous pan flute). The five minutes or so that might be missing won't drag the experience down for me.

Holy Hakuna Matata!!!!!!!!!!

I can not believe that some fans are not jumping for joy over this because they fear it might be "missing" five minutes?????!!

Can not wait!
I for one , am glad its on Disney and not Intrada.
This way it will be in retail stores and can attract more buyers

No, that cue was not on the OST.
