Premiered on July 13, Dahufa claims to be China's first animated movie rated PG-13.

The story is about a short martial arts master who was born to safeguard the fictional Yiwei State. In the film, this little master goes to rescue the nation's crown prince in a town populated by peanut-headed humanoids.

With more audiences rating the movie on the Chinese film review website Douban, the score for Dahufa fell from 8.3 out of 10 points upon opening to a final of 7.8.

"Finally, an animation film comes along that can frighten a child to tears," Douban user Huangaima said.
