KING OF SHADOWS

Shadow puppetry is honored with the title of “The Ancestor of Film”.It is a 3D animated feature film that celebrates shadow puppetry.The movie utilizes the method of film-within-a-film, telling the story of Little Pan, a young man who is tired of his father’s traditional shadow play.

The youth accidentally enters a magical shadow puppet world, and becomes the young prince of the Drakeshadow Kingdom, who, in order to defend his country and the Silk Road, bravely fights against the forces of darkness. He eventually learns the lost martial arts and defeats the demonic Black Shadow who has been stealing shadows, as well as the villainous Minister Shrimp.

He finds the missing shadows that belonged to his father, the citizens, as well as himself, saving the kingdom. Little Pan returns to reality, having learnt the importance of bravery and responsibility, eventually becoming the director of an animated movie and fulfilling his dream. His life’s work is also realized in the form of the Shadowtown, using new and innovative methods to carry on the tradition of shadow play.

Shadow play, also known as shadow puppetry, is an ancient form of storytelling and entertainment which uses flat articulated cut-out figures (shadow puppets) which are held between a source of light and a translucent screen or scrim.
