Story highlights

Good news for Chinese fans of Hollywood anime films as ‘Encanto’, ‘PAW Patrol: The Movie’ both get release dates in the country for January, 2022. 

After a hiatus, Disney and Paramount films like ‘Encanto’, ‘PAW Patrol: The Movie’ have got a release date in China for next month. They will release on January 7 and 14 respectively. 

‘Encanto’ is directed by Jared Bush and Byron Howard, co-written by Bush and Charise Castro Smith. It features voice cast of Stephanie Beatriz, Maria Cecilia Botero, John Leguizamo, Mauro Castillo, Wilmer Valderrama, and others.

While the film got positive response, it has not given great numbers at the box office so there’s hope that the Chinese debut will bring in some money for the makers. The film released in theatres on November 24 and started streaming on Disney + Hotstar on December 24 (after a month’s gap).
