Finally, a trailer that makes me want to see the series.
It’s not hard to see why Hunan TV dramas are so popular after comparing this trailer with the original Qiong Yao ones for the New My Fair Princess 还珠格格. While Qiong Yao’s was awkward, Hunan TV’s trailers that aired this week brings out all the nostalgia of the first one, the pretty scenery of the new one, and combines it all with a dramatic drumroll and solid voice that builds up the excitement.
The series will premier on July 15th on Hunan TV, and will be aired in late July by Taiwan’s CTS and Hong Kong’s TVB. Sohu and Youku will both also stream the series online, hopefully without too much regional limits. In addition to the casts promoting on Hunan TV, CTS has announced that they will spend about 3 million taibi ($105,000) in promoting the cast in Taiwan, more than triple the previous record for drama promotions for the channel and definitely a first for a mainland drama in Taiwan. Rights for the drama has also been sold in Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Korea and Singapore.
Hunan TV will use the original actor’s voices for all the leads, while the CTS and TVB versions will all be dubbed by a different cast.
Watch the first two Hunan TV trailers below.
