Animated Family Film NE ZHA Returns to Theaters January 31
In observance of the Chinese Lunar New Year, Well Go USA Entertainment will rerelease the Chinese box office hit animated-feature NE ZHA (哪吒之魔童降世, Nézhā zhī Mótóng Jiàngshì, 2019) in select markets on January 31.
With somber understanding that this is a very sensitive time for many in the Chinese community and with the cancellation of many Lunar New Year releases, Well Go USA wanted to give a Lunar New Year gift with an English dubbed NE ZHA.
The Lunar New Year is the Chinese festival launches on the new moon and celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar. This year, the first day of the Chinese New Year is Saturday, 25 January, initiating the Year of the Rat, and runs through February 8.
In addition, Well Go USA Entertainment has created an English-dub version of the trailer, now available on YouTube.
In NE ZHA, a young boy, Ne Zha, is born from a heavenly pearl by the Primeval Lord of Heaven, Yuanshi Tianzun. Born with unique powers, he finds himself as an outcast who is hated and feared. Destined by prophecy to bring destruction to the world, the young boy must choose between good and evil in order to break the shackles of fate and become the hero.
Produced by Beijing Enlight Pictures and written and directed by first time director Yang Yu (aka Jiao Zi), NE ZHA is currently the highest-grossing animated feature in China’s film history with box office gross presently at $535 million and over 100 million admissions. NE ZHA is on course to pass WANDERING EARTH and become China’s second-highest grossing film of all-time by the end of its theatrical run. NE ZHA is also the highest-grossing animated IMAX feature in China’s film history, and the second highest-grossing local language IMAX feature of all time in the market.
