Fighter of the Destiny 择天记 calls it a wrap in the deserts of Dunhuang, ending its 134 days of filming in a heartwarming group photo of the cast and crew last October.

Filming went on to many other locations and an ambulance was on-call 24 hours for safety reasons.

Furthering the hype is the hottest young idols that includes Luhan, Gu Li Na Zha, Janice Wu Qian, SNH48 Lin Si Yi and Zeng Shun Xi.
