Scandanavian DVD store?

Hey all,

I'm trying to track down some Swedish movies online at the moment but it's proving a bit difficult. In particular I want to get some Disney movies in Swedish (I know they exist because I've seen the clips of major songs on youtube ) but even searching for their Swedish titles (eg Lejonkungen for The Lion King) on ebay.se etc doesn't really yield anything besides the English originals .

So I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for an online DVD store (equivalent of HMV or CDWow.ie)? I've used bokus.com before for books and it's brilliant, but they're just for books.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

After much searching I found The Lion King here. Can anyone attest to the reliability of the site?

The site below is the swedish equivalent to pricerunner.co.uk if you have used that. Its a price comparison website. If you type in say "Lejonkungen" it will give you alternative sites to purchase that movie. I guess not all the suppliers will ship abroad but it might help you source a few movies anyway

cdon is a big supplier. No problem with it being dodgy.

Thanks everyone. I ended up buying it from discshop as cdon.se needed a personnummer and the .eu version didn't have what I wanted

I must bookmark Prisjakt for next time!

DVDs will often have the film in different languages. You can check on the back of the box. (There will be a 'subtitles' list of languages, and a dubbed list too, so be careful which one you're reading!) I picked up Aladdin not long ago in Tesco that had the whole film dubbed in Danish among other languages.

A lot of DVDs sold here tend to have all sorts of other languages but I've never seen one in Swedish . I've seen Zulu and Hindi even! Quite often there'll be subtitles in Swedish but that's about as good as I've ever found.

Generally, only movies for children are dubbed for the Scandinavian languages, so if you want spoken Swedish you need to look for movies produced by Swedes, like Bergman.

Yeah, but at the moment Disney movies are perfect for my level . I do have the Millennium trilogy though, really excellent movies! I want to read the books now

you should defo check your local library, mine has a good few swedish movies, and would also be a great place to look for kids movies that are dubbed in swedish.

For anyone with access to Netflix (and even more so the American Netflix), there are a number of Scandinavian titles in there.

Trolljegeren FTW!
