In the soundtracks
The complete film score was released shortly after the film's soundtrack, but it was retracted shortly afterward. In its brief release, "The Hyenas" could be heard in full as two separate tracks, "Elephant Graveyard" and "Mufasa's Dead".
In the film
The score is heard during the Elephant Graveyard scene as the hyenas chase down Simba and Nala. The section toward the end is from "Mufasa Dies", where Simba is being chased by the hyenas out of the Pride Lands. The final chord comes from the Elephant Graveyard scene, as Scar watches Mufasa lead the cubs away.
In other media
The stage musical uses sections of score from "The Hyenas". These tracks are titled "Elephant Graveyard" and "Stampede - Part 2".
Behind the scenes
- The score is heard only on non-English versions of the soundtrack.
