Disney Is Releasing an Egyptian Dialect Edition of Moana featuring Carmen Soliman

An Arabic edition of Moana will be released to Middle Eastern audiences in full Egyptian dialect, and singer Carmen Soliman will be belting out all of princess Moana’s songs!

It seems that Disney is increasingly staying true to the international essence of their fictional characters; first, by seeking a full Middle Eastern cast for the new live action rendition of Aladdin, and secondly by launching an Arabic edition of their latest animated flick, Moana. The best part is, it will be recorded and released in the Egyptian dialect!

Moana tells the story of a young girl who journeys to a fabled island on a mission to prove herself as an adventurous explorer and navigator. Joining her is Maui – her hero and a demi-god.

According to Arab News, the release of the Arabic version comes as a first response to renowned Egyptian comedy actor Mohamed Henedi, who recently petitioned a campaign for ‘Disney in Egyptian’. Henedi has been long known for his hilarity and talent in voicing fictional cartoon/animation characters, such as his voice actor role as Timon in the Timon and Pumbaa animated series.

It gets even better, champion of the first season of Arab Idol 2012 and pop sensation Carmen Soliman will be singing princess Moana’s songs throughout the movie. Luma Sabri will work alongside the star to voice Moana’s dialogues in Egyptian Arabic.

We’re definitely looking forward to all of the eh ya gada3’s and the bas ba2a ya Muai’s. At least that’s what we think will happen…
