It looks like the film will be focusing on the early period of the Han Dynasty’s fall if the cast list is lead to be believed. As well as the trailer prominently featuring Yellow Turban forces. Below you can see some photos taken on the set for the film:
It’s certainly looking quite good, and flashy. Though we won’t know how much substance there is to this style until we can actually see it for ourselves. Dynasty Warriors: Destiny of an Emperor is planned to release in Hong Kong sometime during 2019.
