This was done to focus on Christopher’s growth and transformation without the Shuyan storyline to complicate it. Originally, the goal was to have Christopher mirror the struggles that Shuyan went through, but as we got into storyboarding, the project felt stronger without the additional character of Shuyan. The animation style still reflects what the other episodes in the series established as the world of Shuyan, but in this episode Christopher imagines himself in that world. The overall theme and the arc of Christopher’s journey in learning meditation has remained the same from the first version of the script to the final. The major change was just simplifying the fantasy world so that we feel more connected to Christopher.
