Disney Releases Track List for “The Lion King” Featuring Elton John

As The Lion King gets ready to stampede into theaters next month, we’re getting a first look at the sounds that will grace this reimagined Disney Classic.

Like the original soundtrack for the animated feature, Hans Zimmer and Elton John are both working extensively on the project.
