The film will mark the first non-import production available throughout the country.

Along with the Disneyland theme park in Hong Kong and Disney theme stores in several Chinese cities, the film production is said to foreshadow deals for a theme park in Shanghai and a Chinese Disney television channel. Disney is reportedly attempting to break in to China’s booming entertainment business.

According to the Associated Press, Disney is partnered with China Film Group Corp. and Hong Kong’s Centro Digital Pictures Ltd. on the film. It is based on a popular children's book by Chinese novelist Zhang Tianyi.

Stay tuned for updates.
