Our Chinese nation has a history of more than five thousand years of civilization. In this long history, many folk performing arts have been handed down. Shadow Play is an ancient performing art that has been handed down for a long time among people. It is also the artistic treasure of the perfect combination of Chinese opera and arts and crafts. But at this stage, many people are not very concerned about this traditional folk art, so in order to better carry forward and inherit this art form, this paper aims at digital animation to conduct an in-depth research on the development and innovation of shadow art. This paper also analyses the current situation of the integration of animation and shadow play, and then puts forward some viewpoints such as the innovation of processing technology, scene design and audio-visual language. The mutual promotion relationship between digital animation and shadow art by using the complementarity and similarity between animation and shadow play is also introduced.
