Week 19 – Over the Moon

Another non-Disney movie, although we did see another movie by this studio in the Fall semester (Abominable). This one references a beautiful myth about the moon goddess. Again, I wanted to honour Chinese New Year on February 12th, but did not want to encroach on Black History Month.

Week 18 – Kung Fu Panda

I felt like I was including too many Disney movies and not enough of other studios, and with Chinese New Year coming up on February 12th, I thought it would be nice to honour that with a fun movie set in China.
