Discovering The Greatest Wish Of All In Wish Dragon
“Speak out your wish!”
Most of us watched the anime series Dragon Ball in their childhood. The protagonist, Son Goku, explores the world in search of the seven orbs known as the Dragon Balls, which summon a wish-granting dragon when gathered.
But in Wish Dragon, a 2021 computer-animated comedy film, we can make a wish and get a pink hairy dragon without gathering seven dragon balls!
Rendered with Fox Renderfarm, Wish Dragon was theatrically released in China on January 15, 2021, and will be released on Netflix internationally later in the year.
The film was written and directed by Chris Appelhans, starring Jackie Chan, telling the story of Din, a working-class college student with big dreams but small means, and Long (Jackie Chan), a cynical but all-powerful dragon capable of granting wishes, set off on a hilarious adventure through modern day Shanghai in pursuit of Din’s long-lost childhood friend.
On January 19th, Fox Renderfarm launched a Giveaway, Free Tickets of Wish Dragon For Fans, on social media platforms. Many followers left comments below expressing their love and expectations for the film.
Eye-catching Chinese Elements
The Chinese elements in Wish Dragon have struck a chord with many Chinese audiences and introduces China to the audiences around the world as well.
The Director Chris Eberhans met a bosom friend of the same age in Shanghai when he was a child, who had similar personalities. Therefore, the Director places his childhood memories in the film and sets the background in Shanghai, China.
In addition to the Shikumen, Nanpu Bridge, Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower, the design of the soft and cute dragon and the teapot are full of features of Chinese traditional culture. Besides, the dragon loves eating shrimp crackers and is curious about TV, airplanes and air conditioners and other things never seen before.
A Pink Dragon With 3 Million Hairs
Not only the eye-catching Chinese elements, but the pink dragon also impressed the audiences. However, the creative team faced lots of difficulties and challenges while making the role. For one thing, there is no actual reference. Before the final figure was determined, the animation team looked through all the original images of the dragon and the animation works of recent years. In order to make the dragon move more agile and elegant, the team has groomed 3 million fur and created more than 1,000 controllers on its body while modeling and rigging. Hence, in addition to being able to move flexibly, the dragon can also change its shape into a square, round, and other shapes. Besides, Jackie Chan's dubbing and the martial art scenes also make the film more attractive.
As the cloud rendering partner of Wish Dragon, Fox Renderfarm is committed to providing high-quality cloud rendering services and solutions for the CG industry. While continuously optimizing technical services, Fox Renderfarm hopes that there are more works with exquisite Chinese elements like Wish Dragon, sharing traditional Chinese culture and stories with audiences around the world!
