Changjiang Weekly - - CULTURE - By Qiu Chen

"The Wind Guardians," a do­mes­tic an­i­mated movie an­tic­i­pated to be a block­buster on par with "Mon­key King: Hero is Back," will be re­leased na­tion­wide on Au­gust 3.

The film tells the ad­ven­ture of a blind boy named Lang Ming who saves the world from the taotie, one of the "four evil crea­tures of the world," by wield­ing the magic of "The Wind Guardians." The world of the film is said to be de­rived from the scheme of the Wu Xing or the Five El­e­ments. Wind, a spe­cial power in ad­di­tion to the Wu Xing, serves as a key role in the plot pro­gres­sion.

The pre­view screen­ing of the film has taken place. Crit­ics and celebri­ties such as Xu Zheng and Huang Bo rec­om­mended the film for its orig­i­nal­ity and fun. So far, the film has scored 9.2 and 9.4 on so­cial plat­forms Taopiaopiao and Maoyan.
