"Nala & Simba" is a musical piece composed by Hans Zimmer for The Lion King. It was unofficially released as part of The Lion King (Complete Score).


In the soundtracks

"Nala & Simba" was unofficially released as a track on The Lion King (Complete Score).

On June 24, 2014, The Legacy Collection: The Lion King was released, with "Nala & Simba" having been remixed, combined with its counterpart "Mufasa's Ghost", and titled "Remember Who You Are".

In the film

"Nala & Simba" can be heard from when Simba and Nala walk through the jungle directly after "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" to when Rafiki halts Simba beside the pool where he encounters Mufasa's ghost.

Behind the scenes

  • In the original mix, there was a duduk that played Simba's theme as he stared down from the top of a log at his reflection. This duduk is absent from the Legacy Collection version of the cue, suggesting that it may not have been a part of the original recording.
  • The score's cue in the film is "8M19 'Nala - Simba - Mufasa Ghost'".
