The television drama adaptation of Chinese fantasy RPG game, Xuan Yuan Sword 3: Scar in the Sky <轩辕剑之天之痕> will be airing on Hunan TV in China in summer 2012. The drama starred popular mainland actors, Hu Ge (胡 歌), Jiang Jinfu (蒋劲夫), Cecilia Liu (刘诗诗), Na Zha (娜扎), Tang Yan (唐嫣), and Lin Gengxin (林更新). Recently, a two-minute trailer of Xuan Yuan Sword 3: Scar in the Sky was released, featuring elaborate CGI monsters and visual effects. The shattering action-packed footage stirred fans’ anticipation of the drama’s upcoming broadcast.
The story of Xuan Yuan Sword 3: Scar in the Sky took place in the Sui Dynasty, in a fantasy setting where humans warred with fearsome mythical monsters. The wielder of the Xuan Yuan Sword possessed the great power to defeat the beasts and restore peace to the world.
Newcomer, Jiang Jinfu, portrayed the character of Chen Jingchou, a descendant of the Chen Dynasty, who was raised to single-mindedly seek revenge and resurrect his kingdom. Chen went on a search for the powerful Artifacts to boost his power and fighting abilities to fulfill his mission. Hu Ge portrayed Yuwen Tuo, a prince of the Sui Dynasty, with dominant fighting skills who wielded the legendary Xuan Yuan Sword. Hu Ge’s character became the mentor and friend of Jiang Jinchu, where the “brothers” escape death in heroic battles together. Cecilia Liu portrayed Tuoba Yu’er, the love interest of Jiang Jinfu’s character.
Since filming for Xuan Yuan Sword 3: Scar in the Sky started last year, it was eagerly anticipated by audiences in mainland China. The drama was produced by Chinese Entertainment Shanghai Ltd, which also created the highly successful fantasy RPG drama, Chinese Paladin <仙剑奇侠传>, as well as last year’s mega-hit, Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步惊心>. Although the official full-length trailer has not been unveiled yet, Xuan Yuan Sword 3: Scar in the Sky was expected to be a blockbuster drama.

Jayne: The male costumes for the drama look impressive, especially Hu Ge’s warrior suit and braided hair! While the CGI monsters look good, I hope the technical effects do not detract from the actual story telling.
