It's inspired by three of it's most popular animated hits°™The Jungle Book, Tarzan and The Lion King.

A press conference entitled "Face to Face with Disney Dubbing Artists" was held in Beijing's Tianqiao Theater on Tuesday afternoon.

Leading voiceover artists attended include Sun Yuebing playing "Mickey", who also lent his voice to Ben Affleck in "Pearl Harbor", "Minnie", voiced by Tang Ye, who also dubbed Scarlet O'Hara in the classic film "Gone with the Wind" and "Goofy", the voice of actor Li Lihong.

The director of the dubbing project, Zhang Yunming says Jungle Adventure deals with the themes of growing up, love and courage.

Many Disney cartoon heroes such as Tarzan and Sinba grow up in the jungle. This shows aims to teach children about love and courage through their favorite cartoon characters. And it's a happy opportunity for adults to share their childhood memories.

Several of Disney's young fans, who want to have a try at dubbing, have been invited to the press conference.

They explain that it's the first time either they have acted out their Disney roles at the same time. They recorded the Chinese voiceovers separately in the studio to assure good sound quality.

Last year's show was criticized for being dominated by Taiwan accents. So this time around Disney has specially invited 24 professional Chinese mainland artists to do the dubbing.

The Chinese version of Disney's Jungle Adventure will be staged from August 2nd until August 7th at the Workers' Gymnasium in Beijing.
