Arabic Simpsons to Air Soon For First Time

Simpsons News — Posted 28 Sep, 2005 by MrBurns

The Arab satellite television station MBC will be airing an Arabic version of the American cartoon comedy ‘The Simpsons’ during the holy month of Ramadan, marking the first time such an attempt has been made by an Arabic channel.

‘The Simpsons,’ produced and Arabized by MBC, is a comedy and a family drama. A number of prominent young Egyptian actors like Mohammad Hunaidi and Hannan Turk will play the voices of the cartoon characters. Full Story.

According to the London based Elaph, the Simpsons, despite being a cartoon, targets an older audience and tackles family and social issues.

Hannan has been nominated for the leading role in the upcoming film "Ous Wi Lazi'" (Cut and Paste) alongside young actor Sharif Muneer.

The film, directed by Hala Khalil, marks her second film, the first being "Ahla Al Awqat" (The Best of Times), which won her favorable reviews.

Hannan recently flew to Canada to take part in the Montreal International Film Festival, which featured Hannan’s new film “Dunia” (World), written and directed by Joe Sileen Saab. The film also stars Egyptian singer Mohammad Muneer, who plays a young performer who meets Hannan, and eventually the two make their way to Cairo to pursue their dreams.
