On its two-year anniversary, Beijing-based Light Chaser Animation Studios released the first trailer of Little Door Gods, its first feature-length family entertainment animated movie.
Little Door Gods are guardian spirits protecting households in the tradition of Chinese folklore. Written and directed by Gary Wang, Little Door Gods is a modern-day story of two Little Door Gods facing unemployment in the spirit world, as ever fewer people in the human world believe in the spirits anymore. One of the spirits ventures into the human world to make trouble in order to prove his value, leading to unexpected encounters and transformations.
The 90-second trailer gives a sneak peek to the movie’s production quality, which, according to viewers at the event, is in every aspect at the world-class level. At $12 million in production cost, the 100-minute Little Door Gods has achieved this level of quality at one-tenth the typical cost of comparable world-leading studios.
