Yang Yang and Crystal Liu's Movie Version of Three Lives Three Worlds: Ten Miles of Peach Blossom Posters



The movie version of Three Lives Three Worlds: Ten Miles of Peach Blossom, aka Once Upon a Time, starring Crystal Li and Yang Yang are going to the Chinese theaters this summer. Although this version started production and wrapped up shooting before the Yang Mi and Mark Zhao's TV version, the movie has remained relatively low-key and secretive in the media. The movie only released a  a 15-second teaser showing a few shots of Bai Qian and Ye Hua and some movie posters of the some leading characters. Unlike the TV drama, I feel the art direction of the TV movie has a grandiose and mythological feel. The costumes are a definitely more ornate and colorful. Ye Hua's wardrobe also diversified from his signature black palette, as shown below. I also heard there may be a sequel planned for the movie version if the first installation is a box office success. The original story is pretty dense and I don't think a two-hour screen time will do the story justice. I hope the movie version is as successful as the TV adaptation so we can get more Ye Hua/Bai Qian/Su Su goodies!

Deleted Scenes from Three Lives Three Worlds: Ten Miles of Peach Blossom Script


Three Lives Three Worlds: Ten Miles of Peach Blossom (3L3W) or aka Eternal Love has officially ended for over three weeks but I'm still suffering from serious drama withdrawal! It's been a long time since I've been this obsessive over a drama series. I think the last series I followed religiously was Go Princess Go, which was over a year ago.

The production of 3L3W far exceeded my expectations. Not only were the actors' interpretation of the characters right on the spot, the scriptwriter did a wonderful job filling in the story gaps. If I have to point out some flaws about this drama series, I wish the side characters (aka Donghua/Feng Jiu) had less screen time and the the original written scenes scripted for the OTP was kept in the drama series.

After reading some parts of the original script, I notice some scenes between Ye Hua and Su Su were either taken out from filming or completely altered to facilitate shooting. One major scene deleted was a bed scene that was supposed to explain little A'Li's conception.
