Yes. For a long time, this original, earlyest (circa 1940s, probably 1946-48) french dub was considered lost decades ago because of several edits following the different releases. Nearly every classic Disney pre-1970s were always dubbed for several reasons for foraing market. Some of those have actuall 3 to 4 dubs in different counties.
About Fantasia and this french dub. This is sourced fron a 35mm print belonging to a private collector. The people who discovered this are all Disney fans or french dub fans. They of course, do this against Disney approval and will only be presented to some fans in private circles like fanres & originaltrilogy. More details about the print & restoration coming soon.
This project might be really interesting for Poita’s restoration as a nice addition and supplematal element for his restoration. I corresponded with the guy and I think he’s trustworthy. Would everyone (interested) here agre if I share Poita’s project with his by inviting him here ?
What do you think ?
Thanks to let me know
