I’m sorry but his face and body positioning here cracks me up…. what gives?!?

Novoland: The Castle in the Sky has released character posters.  Starring Zhang Ruoyun, Guan Xiaotong,  SNH48’s Ju Jingyi, Liu Chang, Chen Ruoxuan, Zhang Luyi, and Liu Min, you might be wondering why everybody has wings and that’s probably understandable after reading the spoiler below.

This is the third drama after Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy and City of Hopeless Love to be set in the fantasy realm of Novoland. The three are not produced by the same company.  Unlike the other two, which are adaptations, this is an original story focusing on the winged race , one of the six races of Novoland. The main conflict point seems to be the fall of a floating city constructed by the winged race and the various misunderstandings and schemes that come into play after the fall.

Add to that list Zhou Xun, whose first production gig stars model Liu Chang.     Based on a series of “diary entries” of Anthony the Bunny  in A Journey Through Time With Anthony 陪安东尼度过漫长岁月, the film is yet another one of publications from  Guo Jingming‘s ZUI Times to be picked up for adaptation this year. The film is directed by Janet Chun.

Watch the microfilm teaser by Wing Shya featuring Zhou Xun and Liu Chang here. I don’t think it’s actually a part of the film itself.

Yes, that is a tablecloth I'm wearing as a collar.
