Leo Wu Lei leads solid lineup in Battle Through The Heavens

Holy. If they really invited all the listed celebrities, this is one heck of a pretty drama to look out for. Battle Through The Heavens or Fights Break Sphere (斗破苍穹) is based on a xianxia novel written by Tian Can Tu Dou with over 1000 chapters. That part alone makes me want to watch than read. Lol. The synopsis from Wuxia World: In a land where no magic is present. A land where the strong make the rules and the weak have to obey. A land filled with alluring treasures and beauty, yet also filled with unforeseen danger. Three years ago, Xiao Yan, who had shown talents none had seen in decades, suddenly lost everything. His powers, his reputation, and his promise to his mother. What sorcery has caused him to lose all of his powers? And why has his fiancee suddenly shown up?

Exposed Cast List:

Our dear Leo Wu Lei as Xiao Yan was confirmed months ago, the others are not, but filming begins in December. Cross your fingers! Our male lead is described as a sly and unstable person. Lol. He’s crazy? That’s even better! His power is lost because it was absorbed by a spirit in his ring (given by his mother). The spirit needed his power to wake up from a deep slumber. The spirit then becomes his master.

Actor Baron Chen and Li Qin. Her profile says she’s playing Na Lan Yan Ran, Xiao Yan’s former fiancee who broke up with him after he lost his powers.

    This was my first chinese online novel, I started reading because the update to the Manhua was too slow and became addicted and couldn’t stop reading. It was so damn long! Gotta give myself a pat on the back for completing the book — a feat I probably cannot repeat..

    My fave character is Yao Lao, he’s the best T__T and fave female lead is Medusa, Xun’er was just too bland.. Na Lan Yanran didn’t play a big role in the book, I recalled that her teacher Yun Yun was more of a female lead than her? But didn’t see her in the post, perhaps her character was scrapped..

    Quite intrigued to see how the production will turn out, given the extensive material — they probably need to film for monthssssssss..

      Ohh! I’m glad someone has read the long novel! And you actually finished?!!! 😀

      Was reading through the characters description and our male lead marries both girls? Medusa and Xun Er? Can you clarify the bit about the “R” scene between our couple? I’m really not into these types of scenes so I wanted to know the story behind the incident. Thanks!

        Yes he marries both girls at d same time.

        there wasn’t much of a “R” scene i think, as in nothing explicit.

        but (SPOILERS)!!

        i think the 2 times he xxx with each girl was when it was required for leveling up.. hahaha

    OMG!!!!
    Wu Lei for Xiao Yan… YAY!!!
    I’m following this novel on wuxiaworld. Hah…
    He’s very fit to be the hard working Xiao Yan~~~

    Childhood friend? Is it Xun Er (the girl whom he cherished very well) or his other cousins (Xiao Yu or Xiao Mei).

    Janice as the Fairy Doctor, I approve!!!

    The snake lady aka Queen Medusa should have a very enchanting and bewitching body and face, especially the eyes (that’s what the novel described her as). Somehow she’s “forced” to follow Xiao Yan because of certain circumtances.

    I think it’d be a high budget drama if you look at how the story goes.

    Another drama to be anticipated~~~
    Thanks for the news.

      It says Xun Er. 🙂

      I’m looking forward to Snake Woman. She’s quite the bewitching visual.

    Crazy? LOL that’s one word to describe the MC I guess…

    I got about half way through the novel before I decided that there were way too many instances of:
    him being outclassed by someone > him vowing revenge > him getting stronger coincidentally > him beating the bejesus out of everyone…

    Hopefully the drama does it all in a more elegant fashion @[email protected]

      I think that’s the danger of adapting long novels. See Chusen for instance, things in the novel and things not in the novel = messy and repetitive. They need to pick story arcs that flow together, are exciting, and push the story forward. It’s hard.

        I think it has to do with the writing style of this book, the whole book is like a written version of a RPG. Even the levels seem like something out of a RPG. The whole book is about him going through training -> levels up -> meet stronger foes -> training -> levels up -> meet stronger foes -> training -> (repeats till he reached the highest level). Personally feel that Chusen novel is much better (writing wise) but didn’t watch the drama so cannot comment on the adaptation.

        Keeping fingers crossed that this adaptation can turn out fine, they can probably reduce the repetitive parts and just keep those significant events else they will not be able to finish filming?!

          Lol. Most ancient dramas have the same setup, if you think about it. Male leads start out weak/common, then magically/luckily gain some manual or weapon, fight here and there, don’t really need to work for much else since the ladies also fall swiftly at their feet. XD
