Mystical Action “Kung Fu Yoga” Is Latest Jackie Chan Starrer

In time for the Chinese New Year 2017 ushering in The Year of the Rooster, our ever favorite and legendary martial artist and natural comedian Jackie Chan has collaborated with his consistent director Stanley Tong and came up with the Sino-Indian movie, “Kung Fu Yoga”. What an exciting film title and premise right?
kfAlthough this is not the first it ever happened Jackie has previously starred opposite Bollywood actors. And now he’s back with some of India’s superstars like Malika Shewarat, Disha Patani and Sonu Sood who have very high regard and respect to Jackie’s iconic reputation.

Toontastic 3D: New Storytelling App for Kids

Great news for parents and teachers all over the world! You can now download Toontastic 3D, a playful storytelling app for kids to draw, animate and narrate their own 3D cartoons.

Today’s digital devices and tools offer amazing opportunities for kids to imagine, invent and explore with technology—and perhaps most important of all, have fun! Over the years, we’ve worked closely with educators to build programs for kids to create through code, doodle their dreams, explore exotic locales with virtual reality, and even tour the Himalayas with a very friendly Yeti named Verne.. Today, we’re unveiling our latest project for kids—one that will give voice to their imaginations and transform their devices into playful and powerful tools for learning creative skills. It’s called Toontastic 3D.

With Toontastic 3D, kids can draw, animate and narrate their own adventures, news stories, school reports, and anything else they might dream up. All they need to do is move characters around on the screen and tell their story. It’s like a digital puppet theater… but with enormous interactive 3D worlds, dozens of customizable characters, 3D drawing tools, and an idea lab with sample stories to inspire new creations.

Like the original Toontastic (released in 2011 and widely praised by educators, kids, and parents around the globe), Toontastic 3D enables kids to build whatever they like—including book or science reports for school, design pitches, short stories and cartoons.

Toontastic 3D is available and free to download today for phones, tablets and select Chromebooks, on both the Google Play Store and iOS App Store. We hope the app will empower kids to imagine, invent and explore while developing skills for the creative jobs of tomorrow—whether they dream of becoming a filmmaker, a teacher, a designer, a cartoonist, or just want to explore the boundaries of their imaginations.
