Once Upon A Time 三生三世十里桃花 is a movie adapted from the popular novel Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms. It revolves around Bai Qian and Ye Hua whose romance is fated across lifetimes. It is the kind of story that is going to cause you major heartaches, but it also tells a stirring fairytale overflowing with sweet moments.
The first stills of the main leads are strikingly ethereal, leaving little doubt that the casting is spot on, at least visually. For one, Crystal Liu has always been everyone's ideal goddess given her traditional yet exquisite features. Yang Yang (Love O2O) may not have amassed an equally impressive experience in ancient roles, but he certainly has that pristine perfect look and the aura of an immortal being (if it existed at all).
The movie also stars Luo Jin (Princess Weiyoung), Kevin Yan Qi Kuan (Xiao Shi Yi Lang), Li Chun (Journey of Flower), all of whom are familiar faces from recognizable productions.
I honestly can't imagine how the movie is going to condense everything into a couple hours, and I also don't know how it's going to live up to a predecessor that has set the bar insanely high. I'm fiercely loyal to the drama at this point but even so, I'm curious and open to see a different take on this beautiful story and if the character stills are any indication, it's certainly different.
