"Mufasa Dies" is an instrumental score composed by Hans Zimmer heard on the album, The Lion King: The Legacy Collection. In the official soundtrack, it is titled "...To Die For" and is combined with an edited version of "Stampede." The latter portion that scores the hyena chase is worked into "Hyenas" on non-English versions of the soundtrack.
This score does not appear on the original cast recording. However, the score is used in the stage show itself. The score, similar to the use in the film, is used when Scar, after killing Mufasa, urges Simba to run away before ordering the hyenas to kill him.
- A second version of this cue exists. This version omits a lot of the sad theme, instead replacing it with an arrangement of Mufasa's theme played on pan pipes. This version is identified as the "JK Version" while the version used in the film is identified as the "RR Version".
- The Legacy Collection includes both the final cue and a demo version of the cue.
