Ne Zha (Chinese: 哪吒之魔童降世[3]; pinyin: Nézhā zhī Mótóng Jiàngshì; literally: 'Birth of the demon child Nezha'), also spelt as Nezha, is a 2019 Chinese 3D computer animation fantasy adventure film directed and written by Jiaozi. Its animation production is done by the director's own Chengdu Coco Cartoon. Featuring the popular Chinese mythological character Nezha, the plot is loosely based on the classic novel Investiture of the Gods, attributed to Xu Zhonglin.

It was released in China exclusively in IMAX and China Film Giant Screen theatres on 13 July 2019, followed by other theatres on 26 July, distributed by Beijing Enlight Pictures. It is the first Chinese-produced animated feature released in IMAX format, and, despite being the debut feature of its director and animation studio, and having no widely-known actors in its voice cast, it has been one of the biggest commercial successes in the history of animation and that of Chinese cinema, setting numerous records for box-office grosses: as of August 2019, the film is the highest-grossing animated film in China, the worldwide highest-grossing non-U.S. animated film and the second worldwide highest-grossing non-English-language film of all time. With a gross of over $720 million, it is the 8th highest-grossing film of 2019, as well as the third highest-grossing animated film of that year and the 2nd highest-grossing film of all time in China.

It began a North American release on 29 August 2019 in select IMAX 3D theatres, before a nationwide rollout on 6 September

Ne Zha (2019)

An absolute joy.

This is an absolutely beautiful job.

I have been critical of Chinese Production.

My criticism had been, China has a VERY rich story material (Myth/Folklore) and they have not been very successful in adapting the said material for modern cinema.

I have always felt that the reason this was so, is because they tried to hard, to do thing like the west do (eg too influence by Western cinema, that they tried to be very western).

I've always felt that if they made the said material, to movies they like to see for themselves, this would improve.

This movie is VERY Chinese, and is adapted from Chinese Myth.

Yes, alot of artistic license had been taken (in term of the source material) and looking at the end result, I think that this daring-ness from a script point of view, work and the end result is a absolutely a great animation to behold.

This is the first Chinese Animation I had watch in the cinema (well, I lie, I have seen Chinese hand-drawn animation before, but will not reveal which, because I would be at danger of revealing my age...)

So, I can quite confidently say this is the first CGI Chinese animation I have watched at the cinema.

And I am sure glad I did.

They got the script right.

The got the voice talents right.

Animation is very well done.

Based on what I have seen, there seems to be a setup for part 2, and I am all for THAT, if they can maintain this level of quality.

Kudos to

Coco Cartoon (as Horgos Kekedou Cartoon)
Horgos Coloroom Pictures (co-presented by) (as Horgos Coloroom Pictures Co., Ltd.)
October Media (co-presented by) (as Horgos Shiyue Wenhua Chuanmei)


Keep this up.

I can honestly say that I actually enjoy this much better then the first Kung Fu Panda.

I kid you not

Surprisingly the youtube showed clips with subtitles in English, Chinese, and Malay language.
Side note, fate is translated as "nasib" instead of "takdir"
Thank you for sharing. I would give this a watch.

Luckily got saw many positive reviews about Ne Zha and enormous box office figure. Watched and I rate it 8/10. This is a fast pace and hilarious movie. Never thought China can produce nice animation movie.

this is one hell of an animation.
storyline was good.
visual was rich.

editing could be a bit better imho and voice talent could be a bit better too.

but all in all a really good show.
the whole cinema was weeping at certain scenes.

love it!
