Abstract:

In late 2019, a seemingly innocuous and family friendly movie about a teenage girls relationship with a mythical yeti recently made headlines for an unusual reason. Many are questioning whether a scene from Dreamworks animated film Abominable is part of greater strategic communication effort by China to stake its latest claim over the South China Sea.4 Specifically,the scene features a map depicting a nine-dash Chinese territorial line surrounding the areaone containing Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, andBrunei within.
