Ne Zha overtakes The Wandering Earth to become the highest-grossing film of the year.

The Wandering Earth‘s director Frant Gwo drew this to congratulate Ne Zha.

Ne Zha 哪吒, which opens this/next week in the US, Canada, Ireland and the UK and continues to screen in New Zealand and Australia, has finally overtaken The Wandering Earth to become the highest-grossing film of the year with 4.65 billion RMB (645 USD) at the domestic box office as of today. Barring any surprise breakouts on National Day, Ne Zha is set to become the first domestic animation to ever take the title.

Ne Zha is the first of a series of films from new animation studio Coloroom Pictures, which you can learn more about here. Their next animated film, The Legend of Hei, has already begun previews and will screen on September 12th.
