AFM: China’s Yi Animation Serves Up ‘Kung Food’

Making one of the biggest debuts – literally – at the American Film market this week is Yi Animation, a production and distribution studio from China’s Guangzhou.

The company is an established producer of content for television. It is now stepping up with feature film adaptations of some of its series.

First up, and hogging the Loews forecourt with a giant inflatable, is “Kungfood,” a stereoscopic 3D film about rival food items who join forces to stop flavors being sucked out of the world. Completion and delivery will be next year.

With a production team of some 200 animators, the company is also working on a pipeline of movies including: “The God’s Office,” about a strange store populated by a trio of crime fighting alien visitors, set for delivery in 2018; and younger-skewing “More More Monsters,” in which kids fight the demons their parents cannot see. Completion is set for 2019.
