Animation has become a lucrative and contemporary screen medium. As a film form, animation increasingly engages with expressive tools and techniques, whether as two-dimensional drawn components or 3-D modelled or computer-generated imagery. The popular appreciation for animation is manifest in audience and critical reception to animation feature films. Today these products offer a major challenge to live-action in terms of box office performance and profits, especially in the powerful United States entertainment industry. In Japan, too, feature films are often produced after a television anime series has earned a strong following.
