Were you reading Filmtracks too? Posted the same thing on the HZ thread :lol:

Saw it on FSM and nobody had posted it on FT yet. Some of my fellow fellows over there love TLK as much as I do, so I thought it pursuant/pertinent/relevant/revelant/WORDS LIKE THAT to alert people to this.

Very happy about these news. HOPEFULLY it is going to be complete (the instrumental versions of the songs notwithstanding) so that I can finally chuck my old boots outta the window.

I'm looking forward to this. For obvious reasons. This score has been my study for about two years, and I know it quite well, but that bonus material will all be new. However, I will probably rename the cues to their original cue titles.

I see Fantasia on this list. Wasn't Fantasia already completely released? perhaps it's newly-mixed: the film's mixes were quite clearly different to what was on the album (instruments all over the place there)

Shame SWORD IN THE STONE isn't here, but ARISTOCATS is good.

OMFG, YES! SitS is one of my earliest film music memories and whoever releases this one will have my neverending and undying gratitude.

"A Legend Is Sung

of When England Was Young

And Knights Were Brave and Bold..."

Yes!

And Robin Hood and Snow White (the final action cues are missing from the recent release.)

Neat!

Shame SWORD IN THE STONE isn't here,

And Robin Hood. Perhaps next year...

Yes! I need those Tchaikovksy-like fire/chase cues with those crazy strings Bruns did for these pictures, particularly this one at 1:15

Cross-posting the following from FSM:

The score portions that are/were available between US and international releases amount to 21 minutes. The recording sessions (?) that leaked last year are 56:30 in length (excluding all songs/demos). Below I'm trying to line up the new version with track times from the rec sessions:

2) ‘Didn’t Your Mother Tell You Not to Play With Your Food’: 2:13
3) ‘We Are All Connected’: 3:03
4) ‘Hyenas in the Pride Land’: 4:00
6) ‘Elephant Graveyard’: 4:47
7) ‘I Was Just Trying to Be Brave’: 2:16
9) ‘Simba, It’s to Die For’: 0:49?
10) ‘Stampede’: 3:26
11) ‘Mufasa Dies’: 3:29
12) If You Ever Come Back We’ll Kill You’: 2:11
13) ‘Bowling for Buzzards’: 1:09
15) ‘We Gotta Bone to Pick With You’: 1:14
16) ‘Kings of the Past’: 1:40
17) ‘Nala, Is It Really You?’: 4:17
19) ‘Remember Who You Are’: 7:53
20) ‘This Is My Home’: 2:29
21) ‘The Rightful King’: 11:43

The arrangement of tracks (split vs. mixed together) is likely to not be the same between the rec sessions and the new release, so the listing above should be taken with a pillar of salt. There's also the issue of the score having reportedly been slowed down for the soundtrack, but I don't know if this also goes for the sessions (or would go for the new release).

If we take the sessions as the complete score as it was heard in the movie (again, different mixes and demo versions not withstanding), there is about 35 minutes of unreleased score. Without any further information and because I tend to be pessimistic, the official statement of "30 minutes of previously unreleased score" would seem to imply that we might not get everything. That would be a small bummer, but I'm completely ecstatic, 20 years after TLK started my interest in and love for film music, to FINALLY have all the most important moments (Scar and Simba's Fight, Rafiki's realization that Simba is still alive, Simba waking up in the desert to Richard Harvey's gorgeous pan flute). The five minutes or so that might be missing won't drag the experience down for me.

Grown up men getting excited by background music from kiddie movies...

No love for STAR WARS?

No thank you, I have no interest in elevator music...

I have to admit it. The artwork for the cover of this release is very beautiful. It is a great cover depicting one of the most amazing scenes in the film.

Excellent job by Lorelay Bove.

I had the same thought. It'll be interesting to see what the other covers end up looking like - I hope they're as attractive and classy as this one.

I really curious about the Disneyland 60th, because while there's certainly unreleased material in the vaults, the 6-Disc 50th set was already phenomenal.

Much of the best material from Disneyland has been released. It's Walt Disney World that needs serious attention. They could easily create a box set of A Music History's magnitude for EPCOT Center. Most of that park's simply tremendous score has never been officially released. Disney already missed the 30th anniversary and they only seem to be concerned with selling food, booze and teddy bears at the place these days while completely disregarding the original intent and essence of EPCOT Center, so I'm not holding my breath.

This might just be about the best non-JW soundtrack release news I could possibly hope for (that hasn't already come to pass)! Too bad Aladdin won't be hitting another milestone for 3 years, but at least there are a couple of Menkens already announced. :D

I will probably end up getting all of these. I hope sales are good enough to keep the program going.

Yeah, no arguements here. WDW, and EPCOT in particular, seriously needs a major release like Disneyland's 50th. In any event, the upcoming Disneyland release just really confuses me. It's just so... superfulous?
