Watch The Exquisite Music Video For The Chinese Feature ‘Big Fish & Begonia’

Big Fish and Begonia, the indie animated feature from China that has been in production for over a decade and was recently picked up by a major Chinese film company, released a new music video in anticipation of the film’s Chinese debut on July 8.

Directed by Liang Xuan and Zhang Chun, the hand-drawn/CG hybrid Big Fish takes its inspiration from Chinese mythology. The film is being produced by China’s B&T Studio.

No Western release has been confirmed, but it’s clear that a lot of people outside of China want to see the film.

    This is the most I’ve ever looked forward to an animated film. With Miyazaki retired and this looking on par visually and (hopefully) narratively to his work….I rest my hopes of god level storytelling and creativity on this. The trailer alone gives me the excitement and emotion that Princess Mononoke does. Can’t wait!!!

      I see how it’s very Miyazaki, but I don’t think its animation is on par. You can clearly see how robotic the character moves when she’s dancing in that one scene. While Ghibli films are never not fluid.

    This looks really nice, and I hope I get a chance to see it, but why did Korra turn into a flying narwhal?

  • Mister Twister

    If it’s good, people will talk about it after release.

    Looks fantastic! It’d be cool to see a traditionally animated film designed for stereo 3D, too. Titeuf is the only other example I can think of, and that didn’t get a big enough release here(UK) to be able to catch it in 3D

    It looks very charming. I hope it gets a wide release. I still have to get a copy of “The Prophet” and “Adama”.
