|We Are All Connected|
June 24, 2014
In the soundtracks
"We Are All Connected" was first released as part of the complete film score, under the title "What Am I Going To Do? - Sunrise At Pride Rock". However, the album was retracted after one day.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 and released under the title "We Are All Connected".
In the film
"We Are All Connected" is the second score heard in the film. It starts playing after Mufasa argues with Scar and carries through the rainstorm. It continues throughout Mufasa's lesson about the Circle of Life and ends around the time that Zazu comes to give the morning report.
Though the score is not part of the original cast recording, it can be heard during the musical itself in the same sequence of events as its film counterpart. The score was slightly altered. Officially, the music is split into two parts, "Pridelands" and "Rafiki Paints Simba".
Behind the scenes
- The first thirty seconds of the score are used in the beginning of "This Land (Score)".
- The piece is actually comprised of two separate cues joined together. This is evidenced by the use of the second part of the track later in the film, when Timon and Pumbaa wake up Simba.
- The Legacy Collection: The Lion King includes the final version of the cue as well as a demo version of the cue. The demo contains a substantially different interlude to that in the film, as it introduces Rafiki's theme and contains music similar to the Busa theme heard in "Hyenas in the Pride Land".
