Animated films "Onward," "Trolls World Tour" to hit Chinese theaters

More than four or five months after their world premieres, two major U.S. animated films are set to land in Chinese movie theaters next week.

Disney and Pixar's animated fantasy adventure "Onward" is slated for Aug. 19, while Universal and DreamWorks' comedy film "Trolls World Tour" will launch on Aug. 21, according to announcements made via Weibo.

Movie theaters were greenlighted to reopen from July 20 in parts of China deemed to be low-risk areas after months-long closures meant to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.

An increasing number of major film productions are unveiling their theatrical release dates for China, a further sign of the gradual recovery of the world's second-biggest box office market.

Neither "Onward" nor "Trolls World Tour" had strong theatrical runs in other markets following their March and April releases, respectively, because of COVID-19, which means that their runs in China will likely be the most significant ones globally.
