Differences from previous releases

  • The mix for this version of the soundtrack differs greatly from the older releases. Jay Rifkin had mixed the original version of the soundtrack for the film, but for this release, Hans Zimmer asked Alan Meyerson to remix the score, bringing many previously-unheard elements forward.
  • "We Are All Connected" features the insert that uses the Busa theme as it appears in the film.
  • "I Just Can't Wait To Be King" has both Nala and Simba singing the line "No one saying 'See here'" - in the previous releases, only Nala sang it. In addition, it leads in from the previous track, "Hyenas In The Pride Lands".
  • "Hakuna Matata" is longer than the previous album release, as it presents the film version of the song.
  • "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" leads in from "Nala, Is It Really You?" and leads out to the next track, "Remember Who You Are".
  • "The Rightful King" includes a previously-unheard chorus singing in Swahili as Simba rises to Pride Rock.
