Future Spotlight: Skunk Fu! – Exit The Dragon
The past two decades have given us a lot of animated programs, but it also gave us a lot of feature films based on those animated programs. “Doug”. “Hey Arnold!”. “Rugrats”. “SpongeBob SquarePants”. “Teacher’s Pet”. “The Powerpuff Girls”. “The Wild Thornberrys”. I could go on. However, the trend has slowed down dramatically after several mediocre performances at the box office and feature films for animated programs are becoming a thing of the past. I know that live-action adaptations are on the rise, but as a fan of animation, it’s just not the same thing. Fortunately, Cartoon Saloon in Ireland has decided to roll the dice and try their luck with: Skunk Fu! – Exit The Dragon.
“The animals of the valley are in a race against the ninja monkeys, who are trying to procure the rare and mystical ingredients for a magical balm that will cure dragon’s burns and release him from his icy prison. Panda and his forces must get the ingredients first, but should they fail, he knows that his apprentice Skunk is the only one who has a chance at stopping Dragon.”
“Heaven made Dragon into the animals’ guardian and gave him power over water to keep his natural fire in balance. However, to test his loyalty, Heaven sent a terrible drought to the land. Seeing his friends suffer, Dragon defied Heaven and made it rain. Heaven punished Dragon by taking his power of flight and blackened his colorful scales. Enraged, Dragon vowed revenge against Heaven and chased the animals down from the mountaintop with fire, burning the lotus flower which connected Heaven and Earth in the process.”
