New Stills:

Synopsis (without reading the novel): In the ancient times, 6th Prince Mu Yun Sheng (Huang Xuan) was born. Because his mom is a demon (takeaway is…she’s not human), he is not loved by the Emperor, and lives in seclusion and loneliness. He happens to obtain an antique painting of a spirit demon and befriends the little trapped being. Both promise to escape to the world’s most beautiful place. Mu Ru Han Jiang (Shawn Dou), son of a general, is elected to be the prince’s friend since he was young. Their peaceful days end when the eight tribes rebel. Mu Ru army fails to protect the royal family and is then exiled, breaking the friendship formed between the two families – Mu Yun and Mu Run. A few years later, a new rebellion threatens the royal family and this time, adult Mu Ru Han Jiang is the only one capable of protecting them. Pain and sorrows of past wounds now manifest in the new generation.

Huang Xuan. Our isolated and lonely prince.

The dark horse of the three male leads for sure is Zhou Yi Wei. The intensity he brings to his character is unbelievable. And the almost-bald look on him is freakin sexy. Never thought I would say that. XD

Xu Lu. Loved by many men but fated aka prophesized to be the future queen (Yun Sheng’s wife), she’s separated from her one true love.

Old Trailer and BTS:

Directed swiftly by Cao Dun (The Sweet Burden), he will also be working on the drama scripts with Jin He Zai (novel author), Wei Jing Na, and Tian Yan Juan. The series has about 80 episodes and begins airing on 11/21! Poor our messenger Lenje for keeping up with all the red herrings and one true date. 😉 I just knew that if the date is real, the drama weibo would have to announce it since they worked so hard on it.

      It’s airing as a webdrama right now (qiyi, qq, youku). HNTV has no more slots for ancient drama and has given it up. 🙂

    It’s airing online, which means that all the rumours about it being turned away is true. I hope they can recoup a little of their earnings, because they really poured money into it. Unfortunately, I’m not interested in the story at all even though the shots look good.

      oh no, so if hunan doesn’t air it does it mean it wouldn’t earn as much money?

    • 13 thoughts on “Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy fiiiiinally gets a real air date!!

      I wouldn’t say it is true because who is Hunan to judge if a drama is good or bad? They have aired many many crazy bad dramas with super low or nonexistent ratings before. Usually if a drama is really bad, they would put it in the midnight slot.

      I think they have beef with Tribes in some ways and don’t wanna air it, being superior with the attitude to boot, just because they can.

      They won’t lose a lot of money since it’s airing on 3 and maybe more stations after words get out. And online views are the new it these days. These online platforms with their vip membership and ads will generate a lot of money. Plus, new productions like tribes usually don’t expect a high return rate. What they want is words to get out about their crews and productions, which so far is really good.

        This is not true for Tribes and Empires, because they invested a ton of money in it. If you think that they just want good words to get out, then you are very wrong.

        Hunan is the subject of much ire here at AVV, but I’m inclined to believe the rumours, because I don’t see how a book that has less content than a Jin Yong’s novel can be adapted to a TV production with 80 episodes. Plus HX and DX aren’t newcomers. Definitely not rating draws, but at least they are well known and HX’s acting is highly rated (I think overrated). If Hunan doesn’t even want to air such a heavily hyped up drama, there must be some serious minuses.

          Have you been reading any news articles in chinese even? Even the director is new to the ancient drama setting, hence what I said about him wanting to get words out about his directing techniques in a new field. All the leads they chose was because they are NOT rating drawers = not a lot of money for hire. If this drama is success, then his name will draw in (future) investors. Long-term vision here, not a short term goal in this field.

          Plus, the REAL TRUE news is Hunan have ran out of slots to air ancient dramas and tribes is NOT short. instead of believing negative rumors, lets listen to something substantially true.

          Ah, I see. thanks for the confirmation. now that i think about it, Huang and Shawn both branch out to a lot of cool projects after the promo clips of Tribes were released. If it’s for exposure I think they’ve got it down 😀

          I heard that it’s because the director refused to cut the drama the way HNTV wanted. With that said, I don’t believe the rumors at all, because having watched Yun Zhong Ge and Empress of China, all I can say is that HNTV is no opponent of useless, time consuming footage. Knowing the caliber of most of the shows they broadcast, there is no way that Tribes and Empires can be worse than YZG. Let’s not forget Empress of China was 82 episodes primarily consisting of the least interesting parts of Wu Zetian’s life that HNTV cut to be 96 episodes…

    Omggg finally, I’m just happy it’s finally got air date regardless of where it is being shown.
