"We Are All Connected" is a musical piece composed by Hans Zimmer for The Lion King. It is the underscore that plays during the rainstorm and Mufasa's morning lesson with his son, Simba.


"We Are All Connected" was first released as part of the complete film score, under the title "What Am I Going To Do? - Sunrise At Pride Rock". However, the album was retracted after one day. On June 24, 2014, The Legacy Collection: The Lion King was released, with the track having been remixed and released under the title "We Are All Connected".


"We Are All Connected" is the second score heard in the film. It starts playing after Mufasa argues with Scar and carries through the rainstorm. It continues throughout Mufasa's lesson about the Circle of Life and ends around the time that Zazu comes to give the morning report.

Though the score is not part of the original cast recording, it can be heard during the musical itself in the same sequence of events as its film counterpart. The score was slightly altered. Officially, the music is split into two parts, "Pridelands" and "Rafiki Paints Simba".[1]


  • The first thirty seconds of the score are used in the beginning of "This Land (Score)".
  • The piece is actually comprised of two separate cues joined together. This is evidenced by the use of the second part of the track later in the film, when Timon and Pumbaa wake up Simba.
