In the soundtracks
"Stampede" was initially released under the same title on the complete film score. However, the album was retracted after one day. On June 24, 2014, The Legacy Collection: The Lion King was released, with the track having been remixed but released under its initial title, "Stampede".
In the film
This version of "Stampede" does not include the entire composition heard in the finalized version of the score. Instead, the score picks up at the start of the stampede scene and concludes with the musical flourish heard as Mufasa dies. The music played as Simba mourns the death of his father appears in a different score, "Mufasa Dies".
In other media
In the musical, this score is titled "The Stampede". Its official cue is "Stampede - Part 1". Like this version of "Stampede", it does not include the score heard as Simba mourns his father, but rather the music played during the stampede scene.
Behind the scenes
- The Legacy Collection: The Lion King includes both the final cue and a demo version of the cue.
- This version of the cue contains a substantially different mix when compared to the older version. The strings are boosted, and the chorus is panned differently. In addition, brass that had originally come from the demo version has been left out in favor of live-recorded brass.
