Bilibili will premiere a monster-themed cartoon collection that reflects the characteristics of Chinese culture.

The cartoon collection, titled "Yao - Chinese Folktales", was the fruit of Shanghai Animation Film Studio, one of the most time-honored animation production studios in China.

Ten animation directors were invited to create the original animated short film collection that involves eight "yao" (meaning "monsters") related stories originating from Chinese traditions and culture.

"All Yao - Chinese Folktales stem from traditional Chinese culture," says Chen Liaoyu, chief director of the collection. "But that doesn't mean that it only refers to traditional books and legendary stories. It also involves modern, even future Chinese culture," he added.

Chen hopes to reflect the characteristics of Chinese culture in a natural way. The eight stories cover topics from attachment to home soil to doomsday feelings.

Yao - Chinese Folktales will premiere exclusively on Bilibili.
