|The Hyenas (score)|
March 31, 2006
Unlike other scores from The Lion King, "The Hyenas" was not included in the original motion picture soundtrack. Instead, it was released on non-English versions of the soundtrack. The complete film score was released shortly after the original motion picture soundtrack, but it was retracted after one day. In its brief release, "The Hyenas" could be heard in full as two separate tracks, "Elephant Graveyard" and "Mufasa's Dead". On June 24, 2014, The Legacy Collection: The Lion King was released, with "The Hyenas" once more heard in full as two separate pieces, "Elephant Graveyard" and "Mufasa Dies".
The stage musical uses sections of score from "The Hyenas". These tracks are titled "Elephant Graveyard" and "Stampede - Part 2".
The score is heard during the Elephant Graveyard scene as the hyenas chase down Simba and Nala. The section toward the end is from "Mufasa Dies", where Simba is being chased by the hyenas out of the Pride Lands. The final chord comes from the Elephant Graveyard scene, as Scar watches Mufasa lead the cubs away.
- The score is heard only on non-English versions of the soundtrack.
