‘Jiang Ziya’ will have new English dub from February

Jiang Ziya, the acclaimed follow-up to the international blockbuster Ne Zha debuts on 9 February on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD from Well Go USA Entertainment. The studio has debuted a new English language dub trailer ahead of the U.S. release, featuring Christopher Sabat (Vegeta in Dragon Ball Z, Attack on Titan, Final Fantasy franchise) in the lead role.

The vibrant CG animation is an epic Chinese fantasy film about a celestial commander and the choices he makes in protecting the mortal world from the Nine-tailed Fox Demon.

The synopsis of the film reads, To earn his place amongst the gods, celestial army commander Jiang Ziya must vanquish a terrifying fox demon threatening the very existence of the mortal realm. After learning the creature’s fate is tied to that of a young girl, Jiang Ziya disobeys Heaven’s edict and spares the demon, resulting in his banishment to the mortal realm. Ten years later, he is given one more chance to complete the task, and Jiang Ziya must decide: is joining the ranks of the heavens worth the price of one innocent life?
