Photo of the Day: The Wind Guardians


Our photo series this week looks at some of the summer blockbusters set for China’s cinema screens in the next couple of months.

A computer-animated mix of martial arts, mythical creatures, and slapstick comedy all set amid some Zhangjiajie-like scenery, The Wind Guardians is the first feature film spin-off from 画江湖 Hua Jianghu, a Mango TV series that’s been running since 2014. Hua Jianghu itself was launched in the wake of 侠岚 Xia Lan, an animated wuxia (martial heroes) series that began in 2012.
