Chinese Fantasy Film, ‘The Yin-Yang Master: Dream of Eternity’, is Coming to Netflix on Chinese New Year!

There is no possible way for you to go outside of the country during the pandemic. In that case, let Netflix take you to other countries in the meantime. Next trip: China!

Directed and written by Guo Jingming, The Yin-Yang Master: Dream of Eternity is an upcoming internationally licensed Chinese Netflix Original. The film is based on one of Japan’s most famous fantasy franchises in Onmyōji and marks the second film adaptation since 2001.

Jingming has already expressed his excitement to Netflix when he knew he was going to be directing and writing the film.

I’m excited that The Yin-Yang Master: Dream Of Eternity will soon be introduced to global audiences on Netflix. My biggest takeaway from adapting such an oriental aesthetics classic is how to work with the creative team to visualize such a mysterious, elegant, yet dangerous and challenging oriental world in all aspects. I hope Netflix members will enjoy the world of The Yin-Yang Master and find their own fun in this fantasy journey.

For more than 30 years, the Onmyōji franchise has taken over Asia alongside its comic books, TV series, and performances. Recently, the franchise has adapted to making a mobile game and is currently standing as one of the biggest Asian ones in the world.

Set to release on Chinese New Year, The Yin-Yang Master: Dream of Eternity will be coming to the streaming giant on the 12th of February, 2021.

According to Netflix, the official synopsis for the fantasy film is as follows:

Young yin-yang master Qingming travelsto The Capital on his master’s orders, where he attends a Heaven ceremony. Qingming is tasked with sealing a demon serpent for good, preventing the demon serpent from waking from its 300-year slumber and plaguing the people once again. However, the now released demon serpent is mighty and powerful. Qingming, together with a warrior named Boya, Master Nanjiang, and Master Heshou of the Imperial Observatory, team up to eliminate the demon serpent. In the midst of turmoil and crisis, an earth-shattering conspiracy involving the princess begins to surface.
