"The Lion King Special Edition Soundtrack'' Roars onto Shelves September 30th

Features a New Song from Elton John and Tim Rice Plus a Remix of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight"

BURBANK, Calif -- Sept. 26, 2003

On September 30, 2003, Walt Disney Records will celebrate the regal return of the Lion King Soundtrack, one of the top ten best-selling soundtracks of all time. This diamond-certified platinum soundtrack has sold over 10 million copies and will be re-released in conjunction with the first time ever release of "The Lion King" movie on DVD. The "Lion King Special Edition Soundtrack" features a new song, "The Morning Report" from Grammy® and Academy Award® winners Elton John and Tim Rice, that accompanies the newly animated "Morning Report" scene found on the DVD. The new scene features never-before-seen animation seamlessly integrated into the original film. The special edition soundtrack also includes a remix of the classic Elton John hit, "Can You Feel the Love Tonight."

Set against the majestic backdrop of Africa, "The Lion King" is the coming-of-age tale of the young lion prince Simba and his heroic journey to claim his destined role as king of the jungle. The soundtrack, embracing authentic African rhythms and contemporary musical influences, features African vocalists recorded in their homeland and enhances the storyline with powerful imagery and narrative storytelling.

"The Lion King Special Edition Soundtrack'' will include the original underscore by composer Hans Zimmer and six original production numbers: "Circle of Life" (performed by Carmen Twillie and Lebo M), an expressive and commanding gospel-flavored tune which introduces Simba and the cycle of life; "I Just Can't Wait to Be King" (performed by Jason Weaver with Rowan Atkinson and Laura Williams), a playful perspective of leadership through the eyes of young Simba and friends; "Be Prepared" (performed by Jeremy Irons with Whoopi Goldberg, Cheech Marin and Jim Cummings), a rousing call to arms by the villainous Scar as he hatches his plan to murder the king; "Hakuna Matata" (performed by Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella with Jason Weaver and Joseph Williams), a happy-go-lucky and hilarious song performed by the comic duo, Timon and Pumbaa; "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" and the never-before-heard track "The Morning Report" (performed by James Earl Jones, Jeff Bennett and Evan Saucedo). The disc features three versions of the touching love song "Can You Feel The Love Tonight": the film version (performed by Joseph Williams and Sally Dworsky with Nathan Lane, Ernie Sabella and Kristle Edwards) voiced by Simba and Nala as they begin their life together, the end title version performed by the multi-talented Elton John and the brand new, upbeat "Can You Feel The Love Tonight (Remix)."

"The Lion King Special Edition Soundtrack'' will be released on September 30, 2003, for a suggested CD retail price of $18.98.
