CAIRO – 19 November 2017: Walt Disney Company will launch the first festival for Disney in the Arab world movies from November 24 to 26. The festival, called “Disney Festival in Tunis”, will screen about 40 successful Disney movies in the Tunisian capital. Disney has organized this festival to coincide with its 90th anniversary.

The festival is scheduled to screen the as yet unreleased movie “Coco”, during the opening ceremony. “Coco” is a 3D computer-animated American movie in the musical-fantasy style of well known titles such as “Frozen”. The plot revolves around a 12-year-old boy who sets off on a number of events pertaining to a century old mystery leading to a family reunion.

The festival will also screen many Disney classics including both animation and live action in addition to “Coco” such as “Cinderella”, “Toy Story”, “Finding Dory”, “Bambi”, “Zootopia”, “Aladdin” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” amongst others.

Recently, Walt Disney Company bowed to Egyptian public pressure and announced last August the return of dubbing animation and cartoon films using the Egyptian colloquial Arabic dialect, instead of the formal Arabic dialect (Fos-ha).

The famous Egyptian famous comedian Mohamed Henedy previously praised Disney’s decision on his Twitter account saying, “Now we can start dubbing ‘Monsters, Inc.’ and ‘Inside Out’ also if we want.”
