Yang Mi has been attached to fantasy romance drama Novoland: Pearl Eclipse 九州·斛珠夫人 since 2018, and will now be joined by William Chan, Xu Kaicheng and Chen Xiaoyun.Continue reading
The 68 episode drama releases two episodes every Monday to Thursday on Zhejiang TV, while Youku/Tencent members get a 6 episode head start.
Probably the biggest fantasy drama since Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy,, Novoland: Eagle Flag九州缥缈录 has finally announced a release date. The star-studded series stars Liu Haoran, Song Zu’er, Chen Ruoxuan, Jiang Shuying, Xu Qing, Zhang Fengyi, Wang Ou, Li Guangjie, and Chen Haoyu.
The series will air on June 3rd unless Novoland also starts a trade war with China.
Novoland: Eagle Flag has released character stills, and I can’t take my eyes off the supporting cast. I need them as leads in a political intrigue drama of their own right now.
If anyone’s become a fan of Liu Haoran in ancient garb after Nirvana in Fire 2, then this will be the perfect follow-up drama when it airs in 2019.
Novoland: Eagle Flag 九州·缥缈录 is an upcoming ancient fantasy drama that will chronicle the rise of a generation of young heroes, and has confirmed Liu Haoran (Nirvana in Fire II), Chen Ruoxuan (From tonight, the path will be white) and Song Zu’er (Nezha in Lotus Lantern Prequel, Boyhood) as leads.
Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy hasn’t secured an air date yet, though that’s not stopping its production company Novoland from preparing another series set in the same fantasy world. The new drama is titled Wings of Wind 羽传说, and will be helmed by director Zhang Li (currently filming Martial Universe).
The original novel is written by Jin Hezai (Tribes and Empires, Wukong) and depicts the rise and fall of the winged tribe. The royal Feng and Yi families from the previous dynasties overthrew the current monarch, and the Yi family proclaimed themselves the new rulers. The first thing they did was segregate the winged tribe, bringing chaos to the land. As war with the mortals loomed, Feng Lingxue and Xiang Yichi are forced to choose between their love and the fate of the tribe.
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 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.
