A new Chinese animation is due to open in theatres on Friday to coincide with the start of the summer holiday season for school children.
"New Happy Dad and Son 3, Adventure in Russia" follows the tales of a family composed of a big-headed son and his small-headed dad.
Singer-actor Huang Xiaoming sang a promotional song for the new animated comedy.
The film's Art Director, Xu Zheng, says they have made sure to incorporate Russian scenery into the film.
"In preparation for the film, we have done a lot of research on a large collection of pictures about Russian architecture and beautiful landscapes. We developed the idea from a painting done by the big-headed son to bring audiences a fantastic wonder-world The White Night City. It's a story about children's dreams."
The previous two films in this series hit theatres in 2014 and 2016.
