Overview

The Lion King [Special Edition]

Walt Disney Pictures had its fourth straight massive hit with an animated movie musical in the summer of 1994 with its tale of the coming of age of a young lion. The movie studio changed composers, replacing Alan Menken, who wrote The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin, with Hans Zimmer (instrumental score) and Elton John (songs); lyricist Tim Rice, who took over on Aladdin after the death of Howard Ashman, remained in place. John took a leaf from the Paul Simon Graceland songbook and filled his music with references to South African mbaqanga. But there wasn't that much of it: we're only talking about five songs here, three of which are repeated at the end in versions by John (one of those, "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," became a hit single). Plus, there are four excerpts from Zimmer's score.
