Disney plans to publish Indian-language story books for the first time.

Disney is releasing "The Jungle Book," "Aladdin," "The Lion King," "Winnie the Pooh," "Bambi," "Cinderella," "Tarzan" and "Peter Pan" in Hindi, Marathi and Malayalam, Hong Kong-based Disney Asia spokeswoman Alannah Goss said Monday in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
