New visually stunning trailer for Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy

I’ve been trying to keep my expectations low for Tribes and Empires, but the release of another fantastic trailer isn’t helping.

Huang Xuan (Extraordinary Mission) stars the half-human half-spirit prince Muyun Sheng, Shawn Dou (The Last Race) is the abandoned son of a loyal general and Zhou Yiwei (The Insanity) plays the heir of one of the nomadic tribes. Their love interests are played by Janice Man, Xu Lu and Zhang Jianing respectively.

Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy new character

Don’t think we’ve see much of this costume yet…

Tribes and Empires:  Storm of Prophecy 九州·海上牧云记 has released more unseen images of Li Kaixin as the teenage counterpart to Xu Lu’s Su Yuning.  Starring Huang Xuan, Shawn Dou, Zhou Yiwei and Wang Qianyuan, I guess this shows how this dramas has kept enough material coming out to keep us interested but not enough that we feel like we’ve already seen everything.  Some productions should start taking notes.

Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy releases more

It’s always a good day when they come out with stills for this one.

Tribes and Empires:  Storm of Prophecy 九州·海上牧云记 has released more images and videos about production.  Starring Huang Xuan, Shawn Dou, Zhou Yiwei , and Wang Qianyuan, it’s nice they paid that much attention to etiquette and other details in order to bring about the feel of the drama despite it being largely set in a fantasy world.

Readers, what are your opinions on these posters?

Despite the lacklustre character stills, I think Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy has still got it – I love the traditional look of these new posters, which feature all the romantic pairings in the drama.

The 80 episode fantasy drama is helmed by cinematographer turned director Cao Dun, and is aiming to broadcast on Hunan TV at the beginning of 2017. New stills, posters and character descriptions below the cut.

Off in the grasslands of Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy

I’m just glad that the more “ethnic” clothing isn’t insultingly dumb-looking…

Tribes and Empires:  Storm of Prophecy 九州·海上牧云记 has released more stills.  Starring  Huang Xuan, Shawn Dou, Zhou Yiwei , and Wang Qianyuan, I am not a big fan of the color schemes and have some grips with the lack of other colors but it’s a nice different approach.

Storm of Prophecy finishes filming

They released a video to celebrate the finishing of filming

Tribes and Empires:  Storm of Prophecy 九州·海上牧云记 has released stills with more color and a video to celebrate finishing filming.  Starring  Huang Xuan, Shawn Dou, Zhou Yiwei, Wan Qian, Xu Lu, Zhang Xiaochen, Li Zifeng, Kan Qingzi, Sun JIan, Jiang Qinqin, and Wang Qianyuan, the different backdrops are nice since sometimes, you get tired of seeing the same ones over and over again in different dramas…

Storm of Prophecy stills not nearly as impressive as trailer

The trailer was amazing… but after watching it a few times, I kind of miss colors outside of yellow, white, black, and red… They seem to be really strict with the color control here.

More stills for Tribes and Empires:  Storm of Prophecy 九州·海上牧云记.  Starring Huang Xuan, Shawn Dou, Zhou Yiwei,  Janice Man, Wan Qian, Xu Lu, Zhang Jianing,  Jiang Qinqin, and Wang Qianyuan, I like how the costumes are different without hitting the point of being ridiculous.
