Novoland is the handiwork of seven authors, conceptualizing a reality where humans and mythical creatures inhabit nine distinct continents.
Novoland: The Castle in the Sky 九州天空城 is a 20-episode original story taking inspiration from Novland as it focuses on the clashes between the humans and the Yu Clan, which are winged beings that have created a kingdom in the sky.
The cast is led by rising star Zhang Ruo Yun (Monster Killer), Guan Xiao Tong, SNH48 member Ju Jing Yi, Liu Chang, Chen Ruo Xuan, Zhang Lu Yi (Sparrow) and Liu Min (Demon Girl). It gives a fresh youthful vibe that regrettably looks like the lesser known cousin of Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy.
It in spite of having a number of idol dramas under his belt, Zhang Ruo Yun attempts his first fantasy xianxia in Novoland and he faces tough competition from model-turned actor Liu Chang who also attempts his first c-drama after starring role in Les Adventures D'Anthony.
The series premieres Jul 2016 on Jiangxu TV and QQ.
