The long awaited sequel, Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄2>, will finally pilot on July 15. Many audience members still have a special place in their hearts for the original opening theme sung by Eason Chan (陳奕迅), with many stating that they want the original song to be played as the theme for the sequel. However, the producers, Au Koon Ying (歐冠英) and Joe Chan (陳維冠) decided that Triumph in the Skies 2 would open with a fresh number instead.
The new theme will be sung by George Lam (林子祥), who had performed popular openings for series such as, And Yet We Live <當代男兒>, The Passenger <抉擇>, and Big Family <大家族>. By asking George, who has superior vocal abilities and many years of experience, TVB hopes to fire a great start for the series.
Eason Chan had guest starred, as himself, in an episode in the first installment. In the episode, Eason mistakenly thought that Francis Ng’s (吳鎮宇) character, Sam, wanted an autograph and asked for Sam’s opinion on his song, “Next Year Today” <明年今日>. However, Sam was furious that Eason assumed he was a fan and replied, “First, I’m not a fortune teller; I don’t know what you’ll be doing next year at this time. Second, I wasn’t in the movie theaters last year so I can’t give you an opinion.”
