In one year…Zootopia. March 4, 2016. The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.
what happened to xia da? I saw another post saying song of the long march is suspended because of issues and there will be no more chapters?
I was just about to make a post about this.
Yes, what you saw in that other post is correct. Chang Ge Xing will be on hold indefinitely due to the author’s health. (╥_╥)
After getting back the results of a recent check-up from the hospital, Xia Da learned that she needs an extended period of time-off for rest and treatment. She said that she will do her best to cooperate with treatment, though she did not mention any estimated return date.
So right now, we are left at chapter 61, and what a point it is to be left hanging at. There are so many questions that I was looking forward to get answers for. Oh well. Artists and writers, please keep up your works. I will be relying on you to make it through this difficult time.
Another thing we learn from Xia Da’s post (it’s more like an article) is the reason why the drama and game are taking forever (and why there’s no more exhibition). Apparently, Xia Da’s representative(?) from Summer Zoo Studio makes a mess of everything, to put it extremely lightly. I can’t believe she had to work through all that mess. And has there been more exhibitions being organized, we might have even gotten one in North America (hey, you never know). I’m still a bit confused though. After she leaves Summer Zoo, what would happen to all these in-the-work deals like the drama and the likes? Does Summer Zoo retain the rights to Xia Da’s previous works and will continue these deals in her place?
Back on the main topic, Xia Da have taken lots of breaks before due to health-related matters, but I didn’t realize how serious her health problem is. And to think she’s been working all this time…… Her work ethic is very much admirable.
In the end though, health is the most important thing a person can have. So Xia Da, please have a good rest. We wish you a speedy recovery and hope to see you back on your feet again soon.
Another successful Relay For Life. Being on the entertainment committee has never been so rewarding yet so stressful and tiring at the same time. Thanks to Taylor Thrash, Zoo Studio, and David Dulcie and the Ragtag Army for coming out and supporting the cause.
Aside from contributing to the soundtrack of Vans’ first ever skate video, Propeller, the two-piece jazz ensemble made up of twin brothers Jared and Jonathan Mattson, known as the Mattson 2 are heavily rooted in skateboard culture. We sat the brothers down to discuss Propeller, Greg Hunt, Ray Barbee and their new movie, Twinchronicity.
