|Hyenas In The Prideland - Our Little Secret|
2M4 "Hyenas In The Pridelands"
"Hyenas In The Prideland - Our Little Secret" is a musical piece composed by Hans Zimmer for The Lion King. It is the underscore that plays during Simba's conversation with his uncle, Scar, and his interactions with Nala and Zazu that take place before "I Just Can't Wait to be King".
"Hyenas In The Prideland - Our Little Secret" was first released as part of the complete film score, though the album was retracted after one day. On June 24, 2014, The Legacy Collection: The Lion King was released, with "Hyenas In The Prideland - Our Little Secret" having been remixed and released under the title "Hyenas in the Pride Land".
"Hyenas In The Prideland - Our Little Secret" can be heard from when Scar first "warns" Simba about the Elephant Graveyard to the beginning of "I Just Can't Wait to be King". However, the first minute of the song, which sounds rather dark and uses the hyenas' theme, does not appear in the film. Instead, a statement of Simba's theme plays.
- A large portion of the final score is omitted from the film. The first use of the hyenas' theme is instead replaced with a statement of Simba's theme taken from "Nala & Simba", and after that is finished, the music is dialed out until Simba goes to see Nala.
- When Zazu tells Simba and Nala that they are betrothed, flute notes from "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" can be heard in the cue. In addition, a reference to the "Lala" theme can be heard.
