China to Launch Animation Series on Marx’s Life

BEIJING – China will launch an animation series about the life of Karl Marx to commemorate the 200th birth anniversary of the communist thinker, state media reported on Wednesday.

The official Global Times shared the news along with a promotional poster of the series, called “The Leader,” adding that its release date has not been announced yet.

According to popular Chinese anime and games portal Bilibili, which announced the project on Tuesday, the series will include episodes on the philosopher’s “thwarted love story” with his wife Jenny, and his friendship with Friedrich Engels, co-author of the Communist Manifesto.

The series was funded by the Project to Study and Develop the Marxist Theory, which was launched by the Communist Party in 2004. The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences is also supporting the project.

“China has a potentially large number of viewers, and all genres have a chance in the huge market as long as they tell good stories,” Pan Bin, president of Wawayu studio, which is producing the series, told Global Times.

According to the official daily, more than 14,000 Bilibili users have signed up to receive notifications about the series.

In China, animation series related to communism has already met with success. The Chronicle of the Rabbits, a 2015 series that narrates the history of modern China, has been viewed more than 100 million times on Bilibili.
