I think those of you interested in Chinese animation will be pleasantly surprised.

Big Fish & Begonia (previously Big Fish & Chinese Flowering Crabapple) has released trailers and is planning for a July 8th release.  This is a co-production between a Chinese (Beijing Enlight Media) and South Korean company (Studio Mir behind The Legend of Korra and The Boondocks) and seems to draw inspiration from various sources as well as Chinese texts.  The project is directed by Liang Xuan and Zhang Chun.

More below the cut.

  1. I’m actually kind of annoyed by these guys (and not necessarily because it took them 12 years to finally finish the movie, which I’m still looking forward to).

    But they talked so big about heralding some renaissance of Chinese animation, the Chinese Miyazaki and all that, crowdfunded RMB1.5 million for it… and then just outsourced the production to Korea.

    B&T, you are the Donald J. Trump Signature Collection of business apparel.

  2. i’m so excited for this!
    I saw the longer trailer before and it was so cool. and it’s finally coming out after so many years!
