Oz the Great and Powerful - China Girl by michaelkutsche Oz the Great and Powerful - China Girl by michaelkutsche
China Girl character design for Oz the Great and Powerful. While I was working on this design, I stumbled over a puppeteer performance on Youtube, and I was amazed how much emotion he was able to inject into the puppet. So I proposed the idea of creating an actual China Girl marionette and having a puppeteer creating her movement directly on set, with the actors. You can read more about it here: [link]

Shame how they never gave her a real name in the movie. I call her Delilah because it means "frail and delicate". 'Deli' for short:)

She had to be my favorite character in that movie. She was so adorable, and she reminded me of the Magical Dolls from Rozen Maiden.


I loved that part when she wants to come with the wizard, and then she hugs his leg (since she's only big enough to grab onto there). I also loved the part where The Wizard hugs her after repairing her damaged leg.

This is awesome.  She was my favorite character in the movie.  Sweet and (mostly) innocent, with a bit of a temper, and gorgeously animated.  Great design work. :aww:

Same here. She also reminded me a lot of the Magical Doll Girls from Rozen Maiden, which I also like a ton.

I saw the movie last night. She was my most favorite character in the movie!
When I read the book('Wizard of OZ' which Doroty appears), there was a few drawings about china people, so I was really happy to see in graphic.
I just love all of her designs.

Indeed. Few things are more adorable than a magical living doll girl like that.


I went "DAAAWWWWW" so much at the part when she wants to go with the Wizard and she grabs onto and hugs his leg.

I loved this mädchen in the movie! I wish she played a bigger role. It was so cute how mean and vicious she seemed at some times, not considering she was made out of China!

This was probably my favourite character - she was very cute, and had a spunky attitude (as long as she wasn't scared). It was also eerily familiar...I felt like I'd seen a similar character somewhere before... :hmm:
