Hollywood losing China market to Chinese films. World next?:


people in China would rather see stories of people who look like them
and speak like them,” says Aynne Kokas, a professor at the University of
Virginia and author of Hollywood Made In China, which is about the entertainment industry’s relationship with the country.

don’t want a nationalist agenda but they want a movie to feel Chinese.
If they can get that in big-budget blockbusters, they’re going to see

Just out of curiosity, I’ve been wondering if you have seen the movie “Nezha”? It’s been quite exciting to see traditional Chinese stories and myths retold through the big screen. Do you think a merging of traditional and modern pop culture can encourage more young people to take an interest in Chinese history and culture that may otherwise be viewed as boring and dull?


Hi! I haven’t seen the new Nezha movie yet, but I really want to! 😀 I plan to watch it whenever it gets its international release. 

Yes, it’s very exciting to see traditional Chinese stories and myths retold through the big screen, and I definitely think that such merging will encourage more interest in Chinese history and culture from young people. 

Personally, I’m also really looking forward to the live-action film adaptation of Huluwa (Calabash Brothers), which recently got green lit! Xiyouji (Journey to the West), Huluwa, and Baoliandeng (Lotus Lantern) were the Chinese animations of my childhood :’)
