New Chinese Feature

The People's Daily tells us ...

Chinese animation films getting stronger

The Chinese animation industry generally lags behind foreign producers in presenting memorable characters, images and telling good stories.

Domestic filmmakers are trying to catch up and "Jungle Master" from Hippo Animation is expected to boost confidence in China's animation industry.

Released nationally tomorrow, the film in 2D and 3D is the latest offering from the company that released the 3D superhero animation feature "Animen" in 2010 and the second 3D installment of "Animen" last year. ...

Here's a demo from the feature:

Methinks the People's Daily is ... ahm ... thinking wishfully.

Jungle Master might be an okay video game from ... I donno ... nine or twelve years ago? But it has a ways to travel before it could be a significant player on the world market.

There remains, I'm afraid, a wee bit of a lag.
