Yeah, and Transformers is basically in that same vein of music, it's been played out. I'd rather hear his melodic side, and see him work on animated movies. He seemed to want to in the first film music media interview, and I'd really like to hear that side from him again.He did that with gears 2, 3 and JudgementI think Jablonsky should try to get onto a video game like Call of Duty or in the spirit of SOCOM (James Dooley<3)Would be very easy for to him to express himself. Would be a good ippurunity to create catchy melodic themes aka MW2.A fun and really nice writen score, one of my favorites this year.Sonogram, Starlings, Will & Tom, Leaving the Reservation, How It Ends, all good stuff
Atli is still the best! He also never disappoint!That's sad if it is true. I remember her from videos back in the 90's and in many photos with Zimmer himself.Is Hans no longer married to Suzanne Zimmer? I saw articles from Hollywood in Vienna that he’s now married to Dina De Luca.Really fun score. Definitely on par with Elfman's effort.Chronological order is near impossible for music in an open world game.
Hello everyone, Does anyone know how I can find "Homecoming" song in the movie but the film version not the soundtrack version? The homecoming song as it was played in the film itself.was anyone ever able to put the OST and the unreleased tracks together in chronological order?Year, but seriously, these genres are where Harry Gregson-Williams always succeeded  (Animation and Fantasy). I have high hopes that he will do a decent job and find back to his roots from the 2000s.i love this score so much. this comment is for Hans and team again for making such an amazing score. if they ever read what we write here lol : )<br><br>so, i am not a movie goer and many people claim and say that scores are to serve movies, and so and forth. well, i finally watched Dunkirk and it is an excellent movie. the movie did not do justice to the score imo.<br><br>here's an example. "Variation 15" on Nimrod is the "soothing" track for me in the whole score. much more soothing than "Home". i can play it in a loop. it surprised me that the cut gave it only a mere few seconds in the movie. now, i only watched Dunkirk once but i am pretty sure it played once, and for a few seconds, while "Bane" was in the plane.<br><br>another fact is that i always felt like being in a war plane when listening to "Supermarine". not an helicopter but more like a fast moving plane. that was before watching the movie and i never read about the movie. i knew it was about war and the only war machine i could think of was that. the fact that i was able to match the music with my own images says how great Hans and team were on that.<br><br>the constant tension felt in the "Mole", "Supermarine", etc. is more intense in the movie though. i liked that.<br><br>also, i watched the movie credits to the very end. i wanted to see if they would match it with the track. they did, and it ends exactly with the starting point as i expected. for me it was a cue that "the war didn't end there". sad, yes, but the effect was on point.<br><br>so okay, i am minority here in saying that a score album put together is its own thing. doesn't need a movie to exist. great movie. great score. both in their own rights!Don't want to be a downer but, really, let's all hope things won't blow to s*** like they did with Alien: Covenant or some other annoyance.
Harry gregson williams will compose mulan ??!!!!! Come on this is blowing my mind. I truly hope for hans zimmer or other great composer like desplat or silvestri. I wanted hans to score a master piece like last samurai. But no offense to harry. He is good and more than good but disney live action like mulan really wanted something special that i think the right guy is hans !Hans will cowrite the score together with Faltermeyer... :) ;)It's meHello?Great news! Can't wait to see the concert online or Blu-Ray.

So the film is in theaters (again), and it is doing remarkably well (considering it is a re-release). This is the third time this movie is making its way to the top of the charts, yet even now there is no proper score release. Whatever happened to that "expanded Lion King" album that Hans Zimmer promised? I thought he said "one of these days [he] will be good; [he] will ask Disney 'hey let's do an expanded Lion King score', and [Disney] will say yes."? I remember he said the score is not expensive to release, and he even claimed he is looking Lion King his tapes up, and he is finding things no one has ever heard, etc, etc.

So. Why is it that the newly announced Lion King Deluxe Edition album is once again a song collection? How is it that everything is getting an expanded release of some sort (most of which don't even need one), but this one is still a no-go? I am sure Mr. Zimmer can make it happen if he really wants to. But then again it appears that he is so indifferent about his fans. Oh brother...

supporting you in every phrase you've written.
a shame we haven't something until now. and people moaning about inception and transformers, while these beauties haven't got any love since years.

Well said. I recently purchased the new DVD and it was like falling in love all over again with the score. Fingers crossed that the new Intrada/Disney collaboration might finally do this masterpiece the justice that it's been denied since 17 years. And there couldn't be a better opportunity to coincide it with than the diamond edition Blu-ray release!

> About orchestra

I've never seen any particular name of the orchestra on TLK, but according to the end credits, the music was recorded at:
MEDIA VENTURES (USA), TODD A-O SCORING (USA), ANGEL STUDIOS (UK), BOP STUDIOS (South Africa)
http://www.lionking.org/endcredits.html

And according to DVD commentary the chorus was a mix of London chorus & South African choir.
The songs of voice actors were probably recorded in the US & UK.
Plus, most Disney scores are recorded in America, so I think the orchestra was recorded only in the US (Todd A-O), with musicians of Hollywood, as Ravi said.

I think the purely orchestral material was recorded in the US, so it should be the Hollywood Symphonic Orchestra. The material featuring both African choir and orchestra (both score and the underscore for the songs) was recorded in South Africa and UK so LSO could be the one in UK.

No doubt this is the best score of Hans Zimmer, and personaly i think it is the most beautiful and dramatic music ever written!
the movie is also great!

Oah, "This Land" is so much more than life, it is, oh, something so great. Plenty o' feelings, happiness, sorrow, strength and honor, bloody hell, perfect! Thanks, Hans!
Intro of Be Prepared sounds like Nightwish, hmm...

Honestly, I don't see much difference between this CD and the '94 one. At first, I was hoping that it will contain more score tracks than the first CD but, instead, it contains two new tracks which are not very special. So, I don't think that it is greater than the first one. I like the artwork on this one and that's all. So, if they want to release a real Special Edition, then they should add more score tracks and, why not, release a special edition on double CD because a movie with music like this really deserves to be in any music fan collection. I don't say that this CD is a waste of money but, like I said before, it's not very special. So, think twice if you have to choose between this and the '94 one. This is my advice.

I just want to tell you - that would mean, you can download the whole CD without paying anything. That is not okay! Hans Zimmer also has to earn money. Don't be so selfish.
I love your music, Hans Zimmer!
