Master Jiang and the Six Kingdoms Release Date Moved to 2018?


Sometime in 2014, Toonbarn contributor Novid posted a trailer for an up-and-coming animated film titled Master Jiang and the Six Kingdoms. The project was noteworthy and attracted a lot of attention at the time for a couple of reasons. First is that the trailers (which you can see below) look damn good and epic. Second, and more importantly given how nice the trailer looks – is that it is being animated by two animators.

Get that? 2 animators. There’s 5 people in our house right now and we can’t even animate a walking stick figure. Yet these two animators – Li Wei and Pei Fei – are producing 2D CG animation that would put some commercial studios to shame.

It is the fact that there are only two persons behind this sleek animated film (both of whom are also sharing directorial duties) that makes this disappointing news somewhat a little bit easier to swallow: from the original estimated 2016 release date, people are just finding out now that the release date has been changed to sometime around 2018.

We can cut it some slack – we can’t seriously expect two animators to produce such an epic animated film without encountering any setbacks with regard to deadline, right? Just to remind you how kick ass it is, here’s the trailer again:

Some other details for the uninitiated:

Master Jiang and the Six Kingdoms is based on the classic Chinese novel “Creation of the Gods,” which was written around the same time as the more popular Chinese classic novels such as Journey to the West and Romance of the Three Kingdoms. While there was a Japanese manga and anime adaptation in the 2000s (called Hoshin Engi), Creation of the Gods didn’t get as much coverage outside of China which explains why it’s not as popular in other countries (even though in China, it is famous to the point where a movie could just refer to Master Jiang Ziya and people in China would automatically assume it as being based on said novel.)

As for the story of Master Jiang and the Six Kingdoms, we don’t know much yet. But the Creation of the Gods novel basically focuses on a proxy battle in human history between various superhuman beings that eventually became the Taoist and Buddhist Gods.
