Good overdubbed English movies in French?

I'm not yet ready in my French to completely enjoy a movie in French, but just to see how far along I was I put the movie I was watching at the time, Brave, and it was pretty good and was surprised how much I understood, with the help of the subtitles of course. However I put a few other movies which had French as a option to pick as the spoken language and the performance were not very good, it was like some people bored in a room, unenthusiastically reading the lines of the script, to just get the job done. For those who have seen movies in English with the French overdubbed, can someone recommend me the ones with good performances. Thank you.

Good performance is subjective. I rather prefer good French diction. If they can speak clearly, they're fine.

Starting off with Disney animated movies is a very good idea. Check out the classic ones from the 90's, namely The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin. They are dubbed very well. To get a taste, look for the dubbed (and captioned) extraits of these films on YouTube. I'll give you one. This is an excellent and clear performance:

You may also want to check out the Tintin animated series: Les Aventures de Tintin. Also from the 90's, but dubbed by people with good diction.


Thank you for the link, c'est génial! :D


I have just watched "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword". The DVD has French and Spanish options - dubbed and subtitles. I have enjoyed it very much.
