Where can you buy translated Disney Pixar Blu-ray DVDs?

When my kids were younger, we watched Chinese movies on Blu-ray DVDs before Disney Plus was available.

Thanks to Disney+, we usually don’t need Blu-rays and DVDs. However, you might consider looking for a DVD if a certain Disney Plus movie is unavailable in your language.

The good news is that Yes Asia has some Disney Pixar Blu-rays in Mandarin Chinese. Although the price of each movie is high, they offer free international shipping.

If you’re thinking about getting Disney Blu-ray DVDs, keep these tips in mind:

  • Look for Hong Kong, Taiwanese, or Korean editions. Blu-ray discs in these regions tend to have dubbing in multiple Asian languages, including Mandarin.
  • In contrast to Blu-rays, DVDs are usually region-specific and only work on region-free DVD players.

Where can you buy Disney Pixar DVDs in other languages?

European language versions of Disney movies are sometimes included with English DVDs and Blu-ray discs.

For example, the Frozen Blu-ray and DVD on Amazon include English, Spanish, and French audio and subtitles. Double-check the product specifications because every movie is different.
