Alright, so Douluo Dalu live-action is getting the title Douluo Continent which really doesn’t sound so different from its original title. We still have few more months left before 2019 ends and it only means that people who don’t have an idea about the novel or the whole franchise could still spare some time to check out the novel, even the anime, and manga. I think one of the biggest factors for Douluo Continent to look forward to by Chinese drama fans is the fact that Xiao Zhan is starring in the lead role of Tang San. He previously portrayed the Yiling Patriarch – Wei Wuxian in the highly praised and recently concluded The Untamed – the live-action series of Mo Dao Zu Shi (The Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation) – which anime adaptation was listed by our team as the best Chinese anime of 2018.

Douluo Continent Live-Action Synopsis
Tang San lost his mother since young, and he and his father depend on each other dearly. Tang San possesses extraordinary wits and talent since young, and aspires to be a great soul master. When he was six, he was sent to Ruoding Academy for cultivation. There, he came under the tutelage of Yu Xiaogang and also gets to know an orphan girl named Gu Xiaowu, whom became sworn siblings with him. Later, to further improve his cultivation, Yu Xiaogang brings Tang San to Shrek Academy. There, Tang San, Xiao Wu and five other youths form a group known as the “Shrek Seven Devils”. The seven youths later enter the Tian Dou Royal Academy, where they became embroiled in the princes’ battle for power.

To stop Wu Hun Pavilion from destroying the Tiandou Kingdom, Tang San allies with the various sects of the kingdom and wages war against Wu Hun Pavilion.
POSSIBLE ANTICIPATED QUESTIONS
The initial list of Douluo Continent casts is as follows:
Xiao Zhan as Tang San – A former young prodigy of the renowned Tang Sect. One of the Shrek Seven Devils. If you’re updated with the current affairs in Chinese drama, you may be familiar with Xiao Zhan as he played the character of Wei Wuxian in the recently concluded The Untamed (the live-action series for Mo Dao Zu Shi). Personally, I think think he became the breakthrough star of that series and gained so much attention from donghua (Chinese anime) community.

|Soul Land 3DCG Anime|
Tang San is one of Tang Sect martial art clan’s most prestigious disciples and peerless in the use of hidden weapons. With high expectations, the sect’s elders believe his future will be bright; yet Tang chooses to forsake this life at the cost of obtaining the sect’s forbidden lore—an action punishable by death. Tang, now content with his ascension of knowledge, sees no reason to keep on living and jumps from Hell’s Peak, but little did he know that that would not be the end of his existence. In Douluo Continent, the strong prevail and the weak perish. Each person possesses an innate spirit, some of which can be cultivated and strengthened, bestowing its user with various benefits. Those who were born with such spirits can become Spirit Masters, a profession regarded as one of the continent’s most noble. Tang, reincarnated into this strange world, knows only the life of a blacksmith’s son. At the age of six, he takes part in the Spirit Master ceremony, and discovers his spirit is Blue Silver Grass—supposedly the world’s most useless spirit. In contrast, however, he possesses strong spirit power. Now, aided by the memories of his previous life as well, Tang’s future as a Spirit Master is in no way bleak. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Can he overcome the difficulties to reach the high ranks of Spirit Masters and bring the glory of the Tang Sect into this new world?
