Huanmeng Shan Hai Yao is an original donghua that was first unveiled as part of Tencent’s 2021 donghua lineup as announced during their 2020 annual conference. Later on, it was scheduled to air as part of the Fall 2021 lineup of Tencent but that didn’t push through. Now, the production team finally put it on the date which is July 4.
A girl named Chu Yao was pulled into the mythical world of mountains and seas by an inexplicable force. There are endless magnificent territories and countless magical lives, but also unpredictable dangers and ruthless divine law. Who is it that pulled her into this world, and what will be her fate here? Is it to fight against the whole world and become a legend; or to integrate into this world and make the world of mountains and seas a legend…Source: Tencent Video
It is a fantasy donghua that gives off a movie quality and feels and will remind you of donghua movies such as White Snake and The Legend of Deification. It has that supernatural feel too that gives off the same vibes as Bai Yao Pu (Manual of Hundred Demons) especially its main character who resembles the spiritual doctor Tao Yao.
Several promotional videos and images had been unveiled since its first announcement ranging from the trailer, teasers, and even character PVs and posters.
The previously released trailers and PVs brought the viewers and fans to its beautiful world and all the lore in it as the donghua promises to bring fantastic storytelling through vivid and vibrant animation. There’s also a certain appeal of mystery and magic that gives off an otherworldly flair yet still keep the Chinese elements showing their cultural strength.
