Peppa Pig is getting a Chinese New Year movie in the Year of the Pig
Film to be co-developed by Alibaba Pictures and Entertainment One
Well, China might be getting a Peppa Pig holiday movie in Lunar New Year 2019.
(Abacus is a unit of the South China Morning Post, which is owned by Alibaba.)
The show is insanely popular in China, racking up over 34 billion views in just two years.
At one point, tens of thousands of Peppa Pig videos were temporarily banned from one of the country’s biggest short video platform, Douyin. Netizens speculated whether this was a government-led crackdown on the anthropomorphic swine.
