This is a new adaptation of Jin Yong’s famous novel Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre, the third and final part to the Condor Heroes Trilogy novel series. Zhang Zhe Han will be the leading male protagonist Zhang Wuji and Jia Qing as leading female Zhao Min.
The story begins a hundreds years after the second part of the novel, The Return of the Condor Heroes, the story revolves around a pair of powerful weapons known as the Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre. Anyone who possess these weapons will allow the wielder to rule the wulin. It is a story about Zhang Wuji. You can watch earlier version, Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre 2003 starring Alec Su.
Oh, god, I know everyone is waiting for new updates on this new tv series but it seems like this can be rumored or not I am not sure, but will update. There is recent media news that Heaven Sword & Dragon Sabre will begin filming in 2017 no confirm date yet. Recently in media news, Yang Mi & Mark Chao are choices for the protagonist, the couple became highly favorable from online viewers since, Eternal Love, which is top viewed tv drama of 2017.
Zhang Zhehan was first rumored to be cast as Zhang Wuji, but now it has been rumored to be Meng Zi Yi (孟子义) & Bai Jing Ting (白敬亭). I prefer Zhang Zhehan he is a fairly new actor, young and fresh. Please, no pasttimes protagonist who already have their titled fame, wont be surprising.
Zhang Zhehan is starring in Zhao Ge 2017. Casting and filming time is still unknown, follow us for new info and updates!
