    Liu Hao Ran and Song Zu Er lead solid cast in Novoland: Eagle Flag

    Well! After two months of filming, we finally have some posters to look at. Novoland: Eagle Flag (九州缥缈录) is the next drama set in the vast magical universe Novoland. The author, Jiang Nan, along with Jin He Zai (Tribes), is one of the original writers who created the universe and he has been working on the drama script with another person. Im quite excited about this production since Im fond of both of the leads, who are very young in dramaland: Liu Hao Ran is 20 this year and Song Zu Er (The Dark Lord) is only 19, same age as one of my bros. Lol. Eagle Flag follows the epic, sweeping story of three youths who found comfort in each others company during the vicissitudes of life and power struggles between empires, with Hao Ran playing a weak and sickly prince who is sent away.as a hostage in another land, where he meets a brave and untamed warrior (Chen Ruo Xuan) and a witty princess (Zu Er). Their story of struggle, growth, love, and friendship unleash into a heroic journey of sorts.

    The hostage part sounds familiar to our dear Yan Xun? Because this is where Princess Agents novel writer picked up the threads for her main story. Lol.

    This is repost of stuff from MyDramaList (not written by me).

    -----------------

    I saw this comment on the Tribes and Empires page.
    Credit to member"Erudite" for the information about this drama:

    * = Novoland: Eagle Flag (NEF) and Wings of Winds

    Before Tribes and Empires (TAE) released their first dramatic trailer in 2016, they had already worked extremely hard for more than one year unbeknownst to most people at that time.

    The situation with NEF is much like TAE in early 2015, but a major difference, the Novoland IP has exploded, but the requirement for secrecy in production and shooting remains.

    In comparison with Tides and Empires's budget of between RMB300 to 400 million (45-60 million USD) for 75 episodes, TAE [don't they mean NEF???] has been given a budget exceeding RMB500 millon (75.6 million USD) for 56 episodes.

    Sources in Chinese for budget:
    http://news.ifensi.com/article-14-4025929-1.html
    http://sinastorage.com/storage.caito...640e00420.jpeg

    The 2nd link indicated that Legend of Fu Yao will have a budget of rmb500million, but NEF will be the most expensive TV series ever produced by Linmon Pictures.


    Prior to shooting, NEF already had 14 months of preproduction, with a crew of over 1000 people finished constructing structures at more than a dozen locations, including building a "city" at the great plains we saw in Tribes and Empires (TAE).
    (Taking place more than 600 years before TAE, there was a Northen Capital in NEF).

    These were the original shooting schedules for NEF (might be off by a few months)
    Xinjiang : 2017 Sept - Nov
    Xiangyang: 2017 Oct - 2018 Feb (main filming location for Nan Huai, the 2nd greatest human city in Novoland)
    Xinjiang : 2018 Mar - Apr
    Beijing : 2018 Apr - May
    Scotland : 2018 Jan (yes, in UK)

    Source in Chinese for shooting and some cast bios:
    http://www.sohu.com/a/164277823_395924

    So far only 14 members of the main cast has been revealed. As late as Oct 2017, open casting calls for auditions of some minor characters were still being published. Liu Haoran (Nirvana in Fire 2) and Lareina Song (The King's Avatar)played the human and winged tribe leads.

    The Chinese Baidu for Novoland: Eagle Flag is the source for cast info and other items:

    Finally a nice short clip on revelation of cast and crew:

    -----------------

    Oh, you are right but I can't see how it will end well with the Noble Aspirations TV drama after it changed the outcome of one of the lead character differently from the book.
    ---

    Oscar nominated Yee Chung Man is the art director for Eagle Flag:
    Mr Yee is the only Chinese who ever won in an award by the Costume Designers Guild (for period film).
    Why is that significant? Well, competition is so tough that out of the three Lord of the Rings films only one (1) has managed to win in the same category.

    Among Yee's competition the year he won include the likes of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.

    One last thing to ponder:
    For the category CDG Costume Design for a Fantasy Television Series, only one TV series has the honours so far.
    Yes, everyone guess correctly - Games of Thrones.

    Dare we even hope...
    ----

    Ever Night: No listing here yet so I include just a few trivia:

    While Nirvana in Fire was being broadcast live in late 2015 and all the rage, the Biannual Best Chinese Net Fiction Novel awards were held, and the 1st prize went to Ever Night, and NIF got 2nd, sharing the prize with two other works.
    Huang Wei, the costume designer of Tribes and Empires is also doing the same for Ever Night.

    Edit for errors: I wrote Yee Chung Man is the Art Director for Ever Night by mistake while in fact he is the Costume Director for Eagle Flag.

    Name: Novoland Eagle Flag / Novoland: Misty Records (九州缥缈录)
    Author: Jiang Nan (江南)
    Raws: Six volumes [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

    (I've done my best at translating the intro/description from the link to volume 1.)

    In the desert grasslands of the northern continent of Novoland, there exists a nomadic people. All the men there are hot-blooded warriors. All the women there are as formidable as the men. Theirs is the Qingyang Empire. This is the story of the power struggles among those people, as well as the discord between the Qingyang and Eastern Empires.

    Prince Lu Guichen was sent away to Yanzhen by the king. Only after Yanzhen rebelled did Lu Guichen return to the northern capital. His brothers were not concerned with this young and sickly prince, only interested in their own rivalry for the throne. But in the midst of his brothers' power struggle, after experiencing war and the vicissitudes of life, the weak Lu Guichen slowly matures and strengthens.

    With the decline of the royal family of the East and the formation of several vassal states, Qingyang's king wants to use an alliance with the Tang in order to fulfill his desires of conquering the lands of the east. Thus, Lu Guichen is sent to the Tang Empire as a hostage. There, he meets a rebellious and unruly warrior, Ji Ye. Drawn by Ji Ye's tenacity and unwillingness to admit defeat, the two forge a deep friendship.
    ----

    This is supposedly an epic fantasy, some places touting it as China's "Song of Ice and Fire." Which would naturally make me somewhat interested in checking it out. But I don't think my Chinese is anywhere near the level to read it as is, and I haven't found an English version.

    Anyway, it seems to be a well received series, and it's (I assume) different from a lot of the stuff on NU about immortals and cultivating and stuff. So, it'd be cool if someone was interested in translating this.
