Dallas, Texas (January 14, 2019) – Well Go USA Entertainment will release “Jiang Ziya” (Teng Cheng and Li Wei, 2020), the sequel to box office hit “Ne Zha” (Yu Yang, 2019), to North American theatres February 7th. “Ne Zha” generated a total box office revenue of nearly $720 million, surpassing “Wandering Earth” (Frant Gwo, 2019) to become China’s second highest grossing film of all-time — only behind action thriller “Wolf Warrior 2” (Wu-jing, 2017). “Jiang Ziya” will be the second film of a 3D animated series, produced by Beijing Enlight Pictures.
Based on an ancient Chinese myth, “Jiang Ziya” follows Jiang Ziya, a top commander in the divine army of the Kunlun Sect. Before Jiang Ziya can ascend to his new position among the Gods, he is ordered to execute the Nine-Tailed Fox Demon who threatens the mortal realm’s very existence. But when the Fox Demon shows him a dangerous secret, he is unable to complete his task resulting in his banishment to the mortal realm forever. Ten years later, atop the ruins of war, Jiang Ziya is once again faced with a challenging decision – follow the will of heaven regardless of innocent life lost or find his own path to righteousness.
“Jiang Ziya” will be released by Well Go USA Entertainment, a theatrical and home entertainment distribution label based in Piano, Texas with offices in Taiwan. As a leader in independent film distribution, Well Go USA’s titles can be seen across a variety of platforms, including in theaters, On Demand, DVD and Blu-ray, and on Television.
