“The Return of the Condor Heroes” produced by CCTV is scheduled to premiere in China by March 17, 2006. The TV drama was based on the popular same title novel by Jin Yong (aka Louis Cha).
It’s not the first time that Return of the Condor Heroes was made into movies and TV dramas, almost every 2 or 3 years we will see a new version of it, and the fans always seem to support the show.
It’s a martial art cum forbidden love story between Yang Guo (starred by Huang Xiao Ming) and his master Xiao Long Nu (starred by Crystal Liu Yi Fei), with a mystic condor and massive cast of roleplay and story plot around the final years of the China Song dynasty.
With the previously successful and popular production based on other Jin Yong’s novel like “The Legend of The Condor Heroes” and “Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils,” the China production studio CCTV was putting great expectation for this multimillion production.
To create some buzz for the movie prelaunching, CCTV also selected China SuperGirl contestant Jane Zhang Liang Ying to sing the opening song.
UPDATE The TV drama is released in China and all across Asia, and is one of the most popular China TV production ever.
