Re-examining Uproar in the Studio Known as the First Chinese Animation

Although Chinese animation has experienced nearly a century of development, there still remain a lot of questions around its starting point and details of its early development. Based on primary document that were not covered by a previous scholarship, which I contest in this essay, of the subject, I aim at a comprehensive study of early Chinese animation in order to provide a clearer picture of an early development of animation in China. The essay intends to overturn previously well-accepted conclusions on Uproar in the Studio that has been considered as the first animation work of the Wan brothers, going on to revise the history of early Chinese animation.
