Wan Guchan (simplified Chinese: 万古蟾; traditional Chinese: 萬古蟾; pinyin: Wàn Gǔchán; January 18, 1900 – November 19, 1995) was a Chinese filmmaker. Born in Nanjing, Jiangsu, he was one of the Wan brothers who pioneered the Chinese animations industry.
Throughout his career, Wan Guchan would be the closest to Wan Laiming in assisting him in all major projects. In 1958, he would be credited as the innovator of a new paper-cut method. The technique was demonstrated in the animation Pigsy Eats Watermelon.
Wan Guchan would also take part in the 1964 film Havoc in Heaven, which would bring China recognition internationally.
