The most recent adaptations of the Condor Heroes Trilogy include Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017, Romance of the Condor Heroes 2014 and Heavenly Sword and Dragon Saber 2009. There’s already news about one (possibly more) remakes for Heavenly Sword and Dragon Saber which seems fair in that the last one was nine years ago, and yet it looks like we’re about to get one more.
Author Jin Yong personally sold the rights for another Return of the Condor Heroes drama remake. It might seem a little too soon since the last one was only four years ago but the show is meant to reintroduce classic wuxia to the younger generation (born 2000) especially as the main protagonists are also around the same age. Casting calls have begun and the production team has announced a nationwide search for its major characters.
Apparently, the drama is taking an unconventional route as it has Guo Xiang as a POV character and increased the importance of Zhang Jun Bao (aka wudang master Zhang Sanfeng) with their stories told in conjunction with the romance between Yang Guo and Xiao Long Nu. It will be produced by Tencent Penguin Pictures and Summer Star.
