He has included Tibetan antelopes from Kekexili again in Born in China.
Lu says the new film isn't metaphysical but something fundamental and simple－to tell a good story.
Probably to achieve that goal, Walt Disney created a mesmerizing storyline based on real imagery of animals.
"A good story translates from culture to culture, from country to country," Roy Conli, a producer of the film, says in Beijing. "Some themes are universal, and their (the animals') behavior inspires us."
Conli from Disney Animation Studios produced Tangled in 2010 and the Oscar-winning Big Hero 6 in 2014.
"What we have crafted is both epic and intimate. The balance of humor, heart and adventure is truly stunning," he says.
For example, Meimei, the baby panda, is depicted as a curious girl. Taotao, the main role in a monkey story, is like a rebellious adolescent.
