In addition to the film’s original soundtrack, this special edition will include documentary content that takes you behind the scenes of the film score’s creation, as well as 30 minutes of previously unreleased music, and new liner notes from producer Don Hahn and composer Hans Zimmer.

Each album will also feature newly created artwork from Lorelay Bove, a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios (Tangled, Winnie the Pooh, Wreck-It Ralph). Above, you’ll see the cover for The Legacy Collection: The Lion King, illustrated by Lorelay. We’ve also been able to get our hands on one of the illustrations that will be included with the album’s liner notes.

Take a look at this original art featuring Simba and a couple of his now-famous friends, followed by the back cover for the album:
