With the premiere less than a week away, promos are in full swing for Once Upon A Time before it hits theaters in China at exactly 2 p.m. on August 3, 2017 (August 11 for North America). For their first stop, Crystal Liu and Yang Yang went to the Chimelong Ocean Kingdom theme park. It seems like an odd choice at first, but actually fits the theme when you consider that parts of the story between Yehua and Bai Qian take place in a palace beneath the sea.
The two enjoyed some personal time backstage wherein Crystal Liu planted a kiss on a white whale, adding to a list of her many interactions with different animals. She wrote on weibo, “Completed my longtime dream of petting a white whale and I got a kiss too.”
During the event, Yang Yang shared his thoughts on his co-star, “She has always been Bai Qian in my heart. Before, from what I knew of her, there might have been some distance because she was known as ‘Shen Xian Jie Jie’ which means goddess, but through filming, I discovered another side to her that is cute and very interesting. When it comes to some scenes, she is also quite opinionated and able to express her thoughts.” (video)
On co-star Yang Yang, Crystal Liu said that he was a natural. As a trained dancer, his physicality is very good and does a lot to elevate the action sequences. She also complimented that the way he enacted his fighting scenes was unique and very much his own, it’s fluid and forceful. (video)
At this point, I’ve posted tons on this movie and have said all that I wanted to say. It seems like the actors have shared all the details that they can share as well. Now, who’s ready to watch this?
