Disney’s Buena Vista Intl. has taken South American rights –including Argentina, with the exception TV/VOD LATAM , Theatrical in Chile, Colombia and Mexico– to Inseparables.
According to FilmSharks Intl., there are ongoing distribution talks with a U.S. studio and on other key territories.

Some local reviewers talked the redo up as better than the original French hit.
