For sure, my fellow fans of the anime had been waiting for the movie so bad knowing that the first season of the anime series had concluded beautifully 2 years ago. With all the fuzzed that happened in 2017, I could say that Chinese animation definitely getting the attention that it deserves and I am one of those people who had been addicted to Chinese anime or what we call “donghua” because of The King’s Avatar. 

For our readers who are not familiar with The King’s Avatar or Quan Zhi Gao Shou – it follows the story of Ye Xiu, a professional Glory player who was forced to retire due to his colleague’s evil plots and conspiracy. Due to his love for Glory, he will embark on a journey back to the professional scene with his new founded team and take home the championship. Along his journey is a story of hardship, friendship, excitement, dreams, and hope that makes the entire ride an amazing experience to follow.

In this post, I will share some of the facts or things that we should know about The King’s Avatar movie as a short introduction or trivia about the film aside from the details that we had already seen from its previously revealed trailers:

Let's start our list as follows:

  • The King’s Avatar: For the Glory will take place during the first year of Glory Professional Alliance which means that it is 8 years prior to the present timeline in The King’s Avatar anime season 1.
  • The anime film is slated for release on August 16, 2019 in China.
  • The movie will adapt the story from the prequel chapters (Top of Glory) to the original light novel which is also written by Blue Butterfly – The King’s Avatar original author. 
  • The movie will unveil Su Muqiu – Su Mucheng’s older brother and the original owner of Dancing Rain. He is also Ye Xiu’s best friend and in-game rival. He is a very famous player in the Glory before the professional alliance had been founded.

  • Su Muqiu is considered to be the best player of any Gunner class and could even surpass Ye Xiu in Gunner’s proficiency. If he didn't die in the story, there's no doubt that Su Muqiu will be among the Chinese Glory team members in The King's Avatar denouement.
  • Su Muqiu is the creator of Evil Annihilation (One Autumn Leaf’s weapon), and Lord Grim’s Myriad Manifestation Umbrella.
  • Dancing Rain is created by Su Muqiu to tease his young sister, which eventually became his Su Mucheng’s account in the professional scene later on.
  • Su Muqiu supposed to be part of Team Excellent Era’s original roster before his death.

  • Han Wenqing and Ye Xiu’s rivalry in the game and the alliance will be shown and highlighted in the movie. This is the battle on which we will see these two gods in their prime. 
  • Glory Professional Alliance first championship battle will be shown featuring a bloody match between Team Excellent Era and Team Royal Style. In the anime, Team Tyranny was shown as Excellent Era’s opponent for the championship instead of Royal Style. This is the moment where the legendary 3-consecutive victory of Excellent Era started.

  • This is the first time that we will see Peaceful Hermit in action in a motion-picture show as the God-level account wasn’t revealed yet in the anime’s first season. 
  • Lu Lianing – the newly introduced character to play Peaceful Hermit had been made because Blue Butterfly forgot about Guo Ming Yu – the original player of Peaceful Hermit in the novel.

  • In Glory Professional Alliance early days – there are 3 players that people considered to be the strongest and they are Ye Xiu, Han Wenqing, and Lu Lianing (Guo Ming Yu in the novel).
  • Among the strongest God-level accounts at the beginning of the alliance are One Autumn Leaf, Desert Dust, Peaceful Hermit, Vaccaria, and Swoksaar.
  • A younger version of Su Mucheng will appear in the movie and she is such a loli here.
