In a world where Chinese films are often seen as more of a throwback to a bygone era, a new Disney film called Big Hero 6 has caused major controversy in the Chinese movie industry.
It’s the latest in a string of films that have angered Chinese censors and critics, with critics warning that the Disney adaptation has turned the Chinese into a pariah.
The story of Hiro, a superhero who is adopted by a US military base and becomes a cyborg superhero in the hopes of saving humanity, has been a big hit in China, but in the United States, where it was first released in 2008, the film has drawn criticism from both sides of the aisle.
China is one of the most powerful nations in the world, and its film industry has seen huge growth over the past decade.
But the industry has struggled to compete with American films, including films by Hollywood giants like Captain America and The Avengers.
Despite the negative response, China’s film industry is still the fastest-growing in the country.
Last year, the country’s film sector was worth $3.8 billion, more than double the US industry.
The country’s industry is growing at nearly double the rate of the rest of the world’s.
As China has become increasingly popular, some Chinese film studios have started opening up production overseas, including in Hong Kong, Macau and Australia.
But Hollywood and the Chinese government have long blocked Hollywood films, citing Chinese laws and restrictions on free speech.
Disney, which was founded by Chinese entrepreneur Robert Iger in 1980, is currently developing a film in the US called Avengers: Age of Ultron.
