"Battle for Pride Rock" is an instrumental score composed by Hans Zimmer heard in the 2019 remake of The Lion King. As its title suggests, it centers on the battle between Simba and Scar to which Simba and the Pridelanders' battle against him was successful. It is a reimagining of the classic score, "The Rightful King".
In the film
It starts off in a neutral tone where Scar begs Sarabi to be his mate to which to his frustration, the two get into a fight. As Scar and Sarabi fight each other, the score becomes intense when Simba notices Scar attacking his mother just as the score becomes intense when Scar confesses with Simba about Mufasa's death. A reimagined portion of "Stampede" later plays when Simba manages to save himself from falling into a pool of fire and confesses Scar to tell him he is the one who killed Mufasa to which Scar attempts to deny Simba's truth while Sarabi overhears Simba and Scar arguing telling Scar that he betrayed all the Pridelanders. With his lies discovered, Scar sends all the hyenas to kill everyone in Pride Rock. As the hyenas prepare to kill everyone, the lionesses and hyenas charge into each other just as the score loops into a softer, neutral composition where the hyenas offend Pumbaa for calling him a chubby animal.
The score then continues with an upbeat, reimagined portion of "Elephant Graveyard" where Nala and Shenzi fight each other after remembering each other ever since Nala was a cub, which then loops into Rafiki fighting off the hyenas with a triumphant melody, before switching into an intense melody where the Pridelanders continue to fight the hyenas as Simba chases Scar to confront him. When Simba and Scar fight each other to know who is the king, the score played is a reimagined portion from "The Rightful King" from the original to which it ends abruptly when Simba defeats Scar in a fierce battle. The score ends when Scar ends up getting eaten alive by the hyenas which overpower their ruler who betrayed them as the score loops into "Remember", followed by a mixed between "Busa" and a reprise of "Circle of Life".
