While the future success of Star Wars in China is still up in the air, Disney animation is pulling in huge numbers there. It helps that the animated creatures of The Jungle Book, Zootopia, and Finding Dory are easy to dub into Chinese language. That alone may account for why those three are 2016’s second, third, and fifth most profitable films globally so far—and all did very healthy numbers in China. (Especially Zootopia a.k.a. Crazy Animal City, which added a panda newscaster just for Chinese audiences.)
