Disney to make te reo versions of Frozen & The Lion King


How is this for some cool news!?

Disney has revealed that production is underway on two of Disney's most popular films, The Lion King and Frozen, to give them te reo Māori versions.

In 2017 Disney released Moana Reo Māori in New Zealand cinemas, and it's success means that the te reo production of these two films gets to go ahead.

The production is being led by Oscar-nominated producer Chelsea Winstanley (Jojo Rabbit), and Tweedie Waititi (Moana Reo Māori, Rūrangi) from Matewa Media.

There's no confirmed date as to when we can see the films on the big screen, or on Disney+, but we can't wait!
