Three Classic Films To Get New Indigenous Dubs On Disney+

Disney+ might currently be going all out for spooky season with hits like Hocus Pocus 2, Under Wraps 2, and even the upcoming Werewolf by Night, but it looks like there’s going to be some other major new content hitting the platform soon too.

Beginning this Friday, classic Disney films such as Bambi, The Lion King, and Moana will all be available to view on the platform with brand new dubs.

Bambi will be available to view in Arapaho. Originally created in the 1990s, it’s actually the first Indigenous language dub Disney ever did. The Indigenous-American language is only spoken by 1000 people in the world.

The Lion King will be available to watch in Zulu, a Bantu language spoken by over 9 million people in Africa.

And Moana will now be available in Tahitian, a Polynesian language spoken in Tahiti and other island near French Polynesia. It’ll be the second niche language the film can viewed in alongside Maori.

All three titles join other Disney classics such as Finding Nemo and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, which currently both have Navajo dubs on the platform.

The dubs will be available beginning October 7th at 12AM PST/3AM EST.

Sadly, only users in the United States, Canada, and a limited number of international territories will have access to this new content for now.
