Did you watch the movie Ne Zha last summer? In that movie, a young boy has to choose between good and evil (邪恶). He became a hero (英雄) at the end. The film’s sequel (续集), Legend of Deification, came out on Oct 1.
This movie tells the story of Jiang Ziya, the top army leader (军队将领) of the heavens (天界). He has to kill (杀死) the Fox Demon to protect the heavens. But he later finds out that the Fox’s life has something to do with a young girl. Will he kill one to protect many?
While Ne Zha fights hard in the first movie, Jiang builds his beliefs (信仰) in this one. At first, he follows the will (意愿) of the heavens. But later, he learns that he needs to find his own way.
“Jiang is just like us,” said the movie’s director (导演) Cheng Teng. “He is once at a loss (迷失), but he finally finds a way out.”
