China’s hit cg franchise Boonie Bears will release its sixth theatrical installment, Boonie Bears: Blast into the Past, in China on February 5, the first day of the Lunar New Year. The film is expected to launch on over 10,000 screens. An English trailer, above, has been newly released.
All of the previous Boonie Bears features have also been released during Chinese New Year. Last year’s Boonie Bears: The Big Shrink scored a franchise-best US$96.5 million in China, which also made it China’s top-grossing animated feature of 2018.
Boonie Bears started as a tv series in 2012, and follows two brother bears, Briar and Bramble, who regularly face off against their “frenemy” Logger Vick. In the new feature Blast into the Past, the two bears and Vick end up time-traveling to prehistoric times.
