Latest animation is a nod to studio's early films, while carrying a modern-day message about societal change and innovation, Xu Fan reports.

The Walt Disney Animation Studios is known for its delightful array of talking animals. This year, as the animation giant celebrates its 100th birthday, its newest animated film, Wish, brings to life a goat dressed in light yellow pajamas.

During an online video interview with China Daily, Jennifer Lee, the chief creative officer of Disney, couldn't help but smile as she shared fascinating stories about how they conceived the anthropomorphic character, who is called Valentino.

"We often have animals come to us in a very wonderful way. On Frozen, we had a reindeer that came to our studios. And this time, the animators spent quite a bit of time watching baby goats jumping around in pajamas for Wish," reveals Lee, who is also the co-writer and executive producer of the film.
