Live Action and Animation Don't mix in China

I couldn't believe this when I heard this on the radio this morning. Animation with live action actors are no longer welcome in China. The governmation will no longer give licenses to distribute animation that mixes in live action.

These human live-action, so-called animation pieces will not receive distribution or distribution licenses," read the order, issued Feb. 15. However, films and shows that have already received permits will continue to air.

CGI and 2-D characters alongside human actors jeopardize "the broadcast order of homemade animation and mislead their development," according to a report from the state-run Xinhua News Agency.
