    Disney plans to invest US$80 million on new animation based on Chinese Love Story

    Disney plans to invest US$80 million on a new animation based on a chinese love story (one of the 4 great classical novels in China), A Dream of the Red Chamber (or A Dream of the Red Mansion). It would be a 2nd animation based on chinese story after "MULAN".


    迪斯尼計劃投資8000萬美元 拍攝動畫版《寶玉》

    繼《花木蘭》之後,迪斯尼再次染指中國古典題材近日迪斯尼公司宣佈,將投資8000萬美元開拍動畫巨 片《寶玉》,故事原型取材於中國古典名著《紅樓夢》,突出賈寶玉與林黛玉淒美悲傷的愛情故事。

    迪斯尼新聞發言人羅伯特.威格表示,「《紅樓夢》在中國家喻戶曉,備受尊崇。《紅樓夢》作者曹雪芹在中國的 地位等於莎士比亞在英國的地位。曹雪芹創造的賈 寶玉、林黛玉等人物,在世界文化史有著永恆的藝術魅力。中國目前正在舉行紅樓夢選秀,幾十萬年輕人報名參加 。」動畫片《寶玉》與小說《紅樓夢》規模宏偉、 人物繁雜、多線敘事的方式不同,只是選取賈寶玉與林黛玉之間的愛情作為主線展開故事。「賈寶玉的正直、勇敢 與冒險精神深深感染了我們,他將作為第一主人翁 在影片中出現。」

    I hope it does well. I loved Mulan. It still had some vibrant color and its songs were great. Mulan even made it into Kingdom Hearts 2.

    "Investing"... is that different from Disney making it themselves? And will it get an english release? I would hate if a really well-done animated film weren't released here for fear of lack of interest on behalf of the general public. Maybe a limited or DVD-only release, like they did with Miyazaki's films?

    Dream of the Red Chamber

    Volumes I - III

    Chapters 1 - 120

    Sounds like a very long story. No wonder it's taking 80mil or perhaps they are just picking a story with a few built in sequels.
