News of Dynasty Warriors movie first came in 2017. Now, updates have confirmed that the production phase for Dynasty Warriors: Destiny of an Emperor is complete.
According to the KOEI Warriors: Conquerors website, the movie is expected to release in 2019 as scheduled.
Based on the Koei Tecmo’s popular hack-n-slash Dynasty Warriors games, the movie features characters from the series in grand battles and over-the-top action scenes.
Production of the movie hasn’t been completely smooth by any means. There are reports that Loius Koo (acting as Lu Bu) incurred an eye injury on set that required 8 stitches, while Justin Cheung (as Zhang Fei) had to gain 15 pounds to fit into his role.
Dynasty Warriors: Destiny of an Emperor will launch in Hong Kong theatres sometime later this year. As for premiere dates in other countries, we have no news on that end yet. Hopefully, it will be sooner rather than later. Fingers crossed!
