There are six books in total for the Novoland: Eagle Flag series, but as mentioned earlier, parts of the books were first serialized via the Novoland magazines. The series itself was grand, visually stunning, touching and just when I thought nothing would come close to “Ever Night” in terms of cinematography and story (it was my favorite), “Novoland: Eagle Flag” totally replaced it for me. It’s unknown yet whether the drama will help provide some closure on this, but fans are hopeful it will. 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 inLotus Lantern Prequel, Boyhood) as leads. This article here claimed the content in NEF is acceptable, and the reason it got pulled off was due to being affected by "The Gods of Investiture" drama (which got reported for distorting the original folklore tale).

One day, the castle explodes, causing an uproar among the Yu Tribe. He does not like war or conflict, but will do whatever it takes for those that he loves. And at least on the surface, Novoland: Eagle Flag boasts an excellent team. A specific set of characters is used to help tell that story and to get you emotionally invested, but the overall message is a lot bigger than the fates of individual characters. As for the ending – as mentioned earlier, we’re hopeful that the drama will give us a bit more closure. Lü Guichen is the heir of the nomadic Qingyang tribe, and is sent to the Eastern Land as hostage. And then the following video dropped on November 8, 2017. After setting the parameters of the universe, the seven authors all set out and wrote their own books or short stories within the confines of the Novoland world. Executive producer. As for Haoyu, she’s a ’92er who started out as a singer, and was most recently seen in Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace. And once you go with Liu Haoran as the male lead, you suddenly don’t have a lot of options for the role of Ji Ye, as Haoran’s age and lack of seniority in the industry means more well known actors wouldn’t want to play second fiddle (rumor has it that Jiang Jinfu was approached for the role but turned it down). She was the female lead of director Zhang Xiao Bo’s To Be A Better Man and her management agency is a subsidiary of Linmon Productions (it’s also probably why she stepped in for The King’s Avatar, also a Linmon project, when they basically rehauled the production). Zhang Fengyi was invited to guest star as Ying Wu Yi because in a fanmade video years ago, it was his clips that were used for that character. Set in the fictional continents of named Jiuzhou (Novoland), where different countries and tribes fight with each other. In his preteens, he’s sent to the Eastern Land as a hostage of sorts (those who have read or seen Princess Agents – Yan Xun’s hostage storyline was allegedly taken from this part of Novoland: Eagle Flag). Right after the new Novoland: Eagle Flag trailer was released, Linmon Pictures CEO Su Xiao conducted a brief interview with Dushe on the production process and what they have changed about the drama to ensure that it might appeal to audiences more. Still, the drama is recognized for what it tried to achieve. He is weak as a child and overlooked by his family and members of his tribe, but never resents anyone and has a quiet, gentle nature. Because they needed to capture the snowy mountains and the winter elements of Xinjiang, the schedule was quite tight and filming often went deep into the night. When he has his hair down, it means that he’s back in the Northern Land with the nomadic tribes. He channels his anger and frustration over the lot he’s been given in life into fighting and becomes an extremely accomplished warrior. Of course, there’s always going to be the book fans who hate the idea of the adaptation and some of the changes that have been announced. This won’t take away from the story – the reason for this is merely so that those who haven’t read the books can follow along a bit easier and to give the story more of a “main protagonist” to root for. It’s not hard to figure out why both Ji Ye and Lv Guichen are both drawn to her – she brings a light into their lives that neither of them have ever had. Chen Ruoxuan was criticized as being too chubby (he lost a ton of weight for the role), too short (mostly because the production team went with a 185cm Lv Guichen, which isn’t exactly the picture that Jiang Nan had painted in the books), and not “alpha” enough. It’s also been confirmed by the production team and through early screenings that some of Ji Ye’s scenes and threads have been given to Lv Guichen. Dong Yong, who I will remember forever because of the 2002 drama Black Hole, is guest starring in this role, as he was in director Zhang Xiaobo’s To Be A Better Man. The reason why the Novoland: Eagle Flag crew chose to use Xiangyang instead of some of the other more known and established film studios is because they thought that the Tang Dynasty elements of Xiangyang would be a good match for the flourishing cities of the Eastern Continent. I think this has the potential to be a really interesting role for him, because it’s a much darker and layered role than his usual fare, which will allow him to show more of his acting abilities.

They chose the name “Novoland” for the world that they would end up creating because one of the authors, Jiang Nan, was working on a book then that he had tentatively named Novoland (this would later become the first of the Novoland: Eagle Flag books).

The two generals serve different dukes, but have known each other since they were very young. This is a much different father-son dynamic than Tingsheng and Pingjing had in Nirvana in Fire 2, but their scenes are also going to be emotionally gut wrenching. Haoran was the only name attached to the project as the lead from April to November 2017, but nobody could say confidently that he was taking the project. As you can see in the BTS video below (as well as the trailers/previews released thus far), the part where Haoran has bangs will essentially be him playing his “younger” self.

As with all last minute announcements, there is a lack of promos, so here’s the last round-up post I did before they pulled the show off air in early June.. Because many of the scenes would take place on the snow covered grasslands and in the snowy mountains, the sets were not accessible by car – instead, the production team and cast had to walk through the deep snow every day.
