An animated film called Chang Er Flying to the Moon is to be created to promote a Chinese space project with the same title.
Chang Er is a well-known Chinese traditional goddess who left her husband and flew to the moon.
Her story symbolizes China's earliest attempts to explore this magic satellite.
The latest animation techniques will be used in the film to revive these ancient Chinese myths.
The producers will invite top designers from home and abroad to make the film marketable globally.
