Cannes 2010: Vasoon Animation previews Line-up - DEITY HUNTERS, KSITIGARBHA and LEGEND 333

Vasoon Animation has just officially enter my list of studios to keep my eye on in the near future.  The Beijing-based studio is developing three traditional animated film with each presenting a unique visual style and each in various stages of production.  These include Deity Hunters (神猎) aka God Hunters - a strange new twist on the legend of Wukong (the Monkey King), Ksitigarbha (地藏) - a semi sci-fi cautionary tale with Buddhist overtones and Legend 333 (魁拔) aka Kuiba - an oriental fantasy adventure for kids.  Out of the three, Deity Hunters appeals to me the most but all of the films looks spectacular nevertheless.

Legend 333 is expected to arrive in December or sometime in 2011 while the release date for Deity Hunters and Ksitgarbha has not yet been determined.  You'll find the promo reel for each of the three animated films below.
