Fists of furry

Legend of Kung Fu Rabbit is the English-language version of Legend of a Rabbit, the first-ever animated film from China to be exported to the rest of the world, possibly to try to earn back the CNY 100 million it lost in its domestic market.

One possibly intriguing character:

Penny from Legend of Kung Fu Rabbit

She’s named Mudan in the Chinese version, but for some reason they’ve called her “Penny” here. Yan Ni, fortysomething, was the original voice actor.

Yan Ni

In English, Penny’s voice was provided by a teenager: Rebecca Black.

Yes, that Rebecca Black. From the few bits I can catch from the trailer, she sounds every bit like the fourteen years old she was in 2013 when the DVD came out. Still, I should see this some day.

(Title in the trailer. I wish I’d thought of it.)

    And Disney is okay with it?

    Couldn’t find any associated lawsuits, anyway.
