Disney returns to using Egyptian dialect in dubbing movies

Score one for the Masry dialect, as Disney announced it will return to using the Egyptian dialect in dubbing its animated films, Ahram Online reports. The decisions follows an online media campaign in Egypt to restore the dialect in dubbing movies, after it was replaced by classical Arabic in either in 2012 with Brave or 2013 with Frozen . To mark the occasion, we’ll leave you with some choice hilarity of the Lion King’s Timon and Pumba (please excuse the overuse of subtitles in this video, runtime 1:40).
