Chinese 3D computer-animated film Legend of Deification (姜子牙) in Pittsburgh, from October 1.


The upcoming Chinese 3D computer-animated film Legend of Deification (姜子牙), also known as Jiang Ziya, will open in Pittsburgh on October 1. From the distributor:
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?

JIANG ZIYA—follow-up to international blockbuster NE ZHA and second chapter in the Fengshen Cinematic Universe—is a fate-defying, action-packed legendary tale retold through vibrant Chinese animation.
The first movie, Ne Zha, played in Pittsburgh last year. Legend of Diefication will play locally at the AMC Loews Waterfront and tickets are available online.
