Chinese HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL Remake
Disney is taking High School Musical
to China in a new film version which uses the same basic story, but which has been written "from the ground up" in order to localise the specifics of the story:
An interesting choice, no? And it sounds as though the process has followed some unexpected twists and turns too. I guess it will be interesting to compare the two original films when the final version is released. This idea of localizing it by making it more American is so interesting in relation to ideas like globalisaton and so on.
