    Throughout history, the West has borrowed a lot of concepts from China:

    - The compass
    - Paper-making
    - Gunpowder
    - Woodblock printing
    - The Art of War

    All were Chinese inventions:

    Now, it seems the most recent thing the West has borrowed from China was this:

    Not the Japanese Shogun war armor, that alone doesn't make a character, but the story behind it:

    (Remember that episode of the Simpsons, where Homer was trying to tell everyone he invented the "Flaming Moe" but nobody believed him? Well, Jin Yong of China, the creator of all STAR WARS episodes past, present, and future does not need to be believed. He's already rich and famous for publishing his original works/licensing them for China TV productions, etc.)

    China's answer to LOTR: Throne of Elves 3D (2016)

    Personally, I think China is being very creative by letting all sorts of foreign films into its market. To let them incur the expenses of making the films, but only answering to the most successful ones...

    Two years production time on this feature-length animated movie... groovy!
