Multilanguage Disney

As some of you are aware, I absolutely adore Disney. Also, being quarter Italian and loving everything Japanese, I am also fascinated by Culture and languages.

I find it fascinating how Disney films are spread far and wide, and translated into so many languages. I swear it's in every country, or almost, at least.
I think it's amazing how we're all pretty much saying the same thing, just spoken in a different way. Language is such a complex thing but it's a topic I won't tire of.
Most importantly, I love singing songs in a foreign language.

I was in my room about an hour ago and I decided to stick on the Hercules soundtrack (YES, I have a Disney soundtrack. And?) Ricky Martin sings a Spanish version of "Go The Distance" (No Importa La Distancia) and I found it so beautiful. Plus his voice is very yummy too. But anyway.

I have decided to post some foreign Disney songs, but in the language that the film is set in. Underneath there will (hopefully) be a multilanguage video, so if you listen and there's a particular language you might like to listen to, you can always YouTube it!

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Belle - Beauty and the Beast (French)


Go The Distance - Hercules (Greek)


I Won't Say I'm in Love - Hercules (Greek)


I'll Make A Man Out Of You - Mulan (Mandarin Chinese, sung by Jackie Chan apparently...Donny Osmond sang the English version!)


Reflection - Mulan (Mandarin Chinese)


A Whole New World - Aladdin (Arabic)


Part of Your World - The Little Mermaid (Multi Language)

Can You Feel The Love Tonight? - The Lion King (Multi Language(

Colours Of The Wind - Pocahontas (Multi Language)

God Help The Outcasts - The Hunchback Of Notre Dame (Multi Language)

I love all these clips- I also love languages, but most of them were totally new to me anyway, as I'm just catching up on Disney
