The animation movie Sparkling Red Star is originated from the same titled novel written by a famous Chinese writer Li Xintian. The novel was remade into a movie in the 70’s and the movie has been one of the classic all-time hit in China’s film industry. The story is about how a countryside kid grows and survives in an adverse environment. The story is motivating and encouraging and it has become a must-see educational movie for kids for the past 30 years.
This famous story is now re-scripted by richly experienced scriptwriter and remade by Puzzle Animation Studio with lots of modern elements. With the lively vivid animation expression, Puzzle Animation has enriched and brushed up the unique artistic style of the original plot. And therefore this animation movie can surely inherit its originality and bring out the spirit of the lead character Pan again to the children.
In 2002, Directed by Kelly Asbury and Lorna Cooke, the 2D-animated equine-themed feature Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron opens in U.S. theaters. The film picks up one Oscar nom and four Annies in 2003.
