I hope he's still got Mark Mancina's phone number!

If he won the best score Oscar that year (2019/20), would he be the first composer to win the Oscar twice for the same score?

Oh like that would happen.

In fact I'm surprised Zimmer was still allowed to keep that oscar in the first place.

Hope it's not as disastrous as Menken returning for the live action B&TB.

As long as it isn't Junkie XL's phone number.

A modern-day Zimmer LK score: probably no theme, and just chords and a BRAAAAAMMMMM or two. Or three.

It's exactly the same as the score for the 1994 movie. There are differences in orchestration here or there but unfortunately there's no new melodies. So I'm a bit disappointed. But, hey, at least I don't have to spend my money for another CD! smile

That would be a disappointment.
Hans said it would be more like a live, concert style soundtrack

Yeah, I really want a different take, not a.copy.

You're lucky I have taken a ' no personal insults' vow!

Right, cause Mancina's career is chock full of ground-breaking, popular, award-winning scores!

There aren't really any new themes to speak of, but this is by no means "exactly the same." Cues have been heavily rearranged and reinterpreted and just like Zimmer said, the whole album does have a live concert sort of sound to it. I don't think it's half bad, honestly.

He toned down the absolute best musical moment for me. The showdown between Simba and Scar in slow mo. It all feels more produced. I’ll still buy it though.
