With the trend of globalization, the integration of Chinese culture and contemporary animation presents vast opportunities for development. Incorporating calligraphy art into animation not only carries forward traditional cultural heritage but also explores new frontiers in the domain of contemporary animation. This paper seeks to examine representative cases from domestic and foreign sources, with a particular focus on the expression, function, and significance of calligraphy in animation. Innovative methods in calligraphy art within the realm of animation are summarized, and a comprehensive overview and outlook for the application of calligraphy art in animation are provided. The aim of this study is to offer inspiration and guidance for researchers in related fields.
