CMC Pictures in association with Trinity / Cine Asia is proud to release the Chinese animated box office hit, Ne Zha, in IMAX 3D from 30th August and UK & ROI cinemas from 6th September 2019.
Inspired by mythology and loosely adapted from a Chinese novel, heaven and earth has given birth to a powerful pearl possessing great energy.
Yuanshi Tianzun, the Primeval Lord of Heaven, concocts two pills from the pearl – a spiritual pill, Ling Zhu, and a sorcery pill, Mo Wan – and seals both of them in a sacred lotus. The spiritual pill will reincarnate as a man, who is destined to assist in the creation of the new Zhou dynasty; while a demon will be born from the sorcery pill, set to bring great destruction to the world. To prevent disaster, a spell is created which will strike the sorcery pill with thunder in three years. Will Nezha, a young boy born from the sorcery pill, live up to his evil fate, or can he forge his own path for good?
The director Jiaozi spent two years refining the story. Along with its great script, Ne Zha’s incredible special effects and computer-generated visuals took over 20 animation studios, 1600 animators in China and years in the making. This exceptional movie is the must-see animated blockbuster of the year, even surpassing Avengers: Endgame’s box-office in China!
