“Nirvana In Fire II: The Wind Blows in Chang Lin” to air December 18th
Two years after the commercial success of “Nirvana in Fire,” starring “Hu Ge” and “Wang Kai” the sequel “Nirvana in Fire: The Wind Blows in Chang Lin” is about to hit the small screens December 18th. Slated for two seasons, totaling 48 episodes. The original cast will not be returning as the sequel of the story will take place 40 years after the events of “Nirvana in Fire.” The sequel will have big shoes to fill as the prequel was widely successful with audiences.
“Huang Xiao Ming” will play a powerful general, was originally cast only as a guest star but it looks like he will take on a major role in the first season. Although I’m saddened the original cast will not return, this cast for this sequel does look promising. Hard to deny it’s a good looking cast. However, a masterpiece script still needs talent to execute it. The prequel left little to be criticized when each actor left a lasting impression. Although “Huang Xiao Ming” may be pleasing to the eye, I find him to be a one dimensional actor, so depending on the role he will be portraying it might suit his usual air of arrogance that he embodies onscreen.
The cinematography looks great and the costumes appears fitting to the period. Take a look at the trailer
