AWN Explains China’s Human/Toon Hybrid Ban
An article at Animation World Network goes into further detail explaining China’s recent ban on foreign films showing human and cartoon characters together (previously reported on Toon Zone News). China’s broadcasters were circumventing a law that mandated matching imported animation with domestically produced animation hour-for-hour by showing live-action programming with only a few minutes of domestic animation. The new law is intended to plug that loophole and stimulate the native Chinese animation market. The new rules were not intended to directly ban movies such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit?.
