Dilraba, Shawn Dou Star in Saga of Light

Shawn Dou plays Hou Yi, an archer who shoots down nine out of the ten suns to  save the world.

Dilraba and Shawn Dou star in The Saga of Light 日月, a rom-com retelling of the legend Hou Yi and Chang’e. Directed by Jin Yimeng, the film is the first I know of that puts them in semi-prehistoric gear rather than just hanfu.

Shawn Dou plays Hou Yi, an legendary archer who shoots down nine out of the ten suns to  save the world.   His reward was a pill of immortality that was instead eaten by his wife Chang’e (Dilraba), who became the goddess of the Moon. The film has just wrapped up filming and is set for a summer 2019 release.

Included on the websites is Sophie’s Revenge first teaser trailer. This was released at Cannes, and it did a pretty good job because the rights were sold to five countries.

A few more pictures from the launch and some new HQ stills from the movie below. The latter is my real reason for making this post.
