Are these the first time the incidental music cues are being released? Because I've always wanted to get my hands on a complete Aladdin album. Shame it isn't in the list here.

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)

Interesting news. I hope they do an expansion for Aladdin, that's my number one Disney score I want in expanded/complete form.

Escape to Witch Mountain by Johnny Mandel (and, for that matter, Return from Witch Mountain by Lalo Schifrin) would be nice. It's celebrating its 40th annivesary next year.

I don't give a shit what fanboys classify it as. It's a kiddie film. Plain and simple.

AMAZEMENT!!! :santa: This is really great news, on all the releases :woop:

I'm glad they left the bonus song for the bonus disc, and didn't slot it into the main track list.

I'll definitely be purchasing this. I hope all these releases manage to stuff in as much previously-unreleased material as possible!

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.
