I saw this comment on the Tribes and Empires page. 
Credit to member"Erudite" for the information about this drama:

* = Novoland: Eagle Flag (NEF) and Wings of Winds

Before Tribes and Empires (TAE) released their first dramatic trailer in 2016, they had already worked extremely hard for more than one year unbeknownst to most people at that time.

The situation with NEF is much like TAE in early 2015, but a major difference, the Novoland IP has exploded, but the requirement for secrecy in production and shooting remains.

In comparison with Tribes and Empires's budget of between RMB300 to 400 million (45-60 million USD) for 75 episodes, "Eagle Flag" has been given a budget exceeding RMB500 millon (75.6 million USD) for 56 episodes.

Sources in Chinese for budget:
http://news.ifensi.com/article-14-4025929-1.html
http://sinastorage.com/storage.caitou.sina.com.cn/products/201703/55df21edd0ab6fa47b2310e640e00420.jpeg

The 2nd link indicated that Legend of Fu Yao will have a budget of rmb500million, but NEF will be the most expensive TV series ever produced by Linmon Pictures.

Prior to shooting, NEF already had 14 months of preproduction, with a crew of over 1000 people finished constructing structures at more than a dozen locations, including building a "city" at the great plains we saw in Tribes and Empires (TAE).
(Taking place more than 600 years before TAE, there was a Northen Capital in NEF).

These were the original shooting schedules for NEF (might be off by a few months)
Xinjiang : 2017 Sept - Nov
Xiangyang: 2017 Oct - 2018 Feb (main filming location for Nan Huai, the 2nd greatest human city in Novoland)
Xinjiang : 2018 Mar - Apr
Beijing : 2018 Apr - May
Scotland : 2018 Jan (yes, in UK)

So far only 14 members of the main cast has been revealed. As late as Oct 2017, open casting calls for auditions of some minor characters were still being published. Liu Haoran (Nirvana in Fire 2) and Lareina Song (The King's Avatar)played the human and winged tribe leads.

I really like Liu Haoran in NiF2 but the fact that the producing company is Linmon gives me pause (same as with Legend of Fu Yao).

Hi!

May I know what is wrong this company? Do they produce bad dramas?

 

I 'm really interested in this show. It has Liu Haoran(NIF 2) and Chen Ruo Xuan(Evil Minds), my favourite young actors. Watching them both in a drama together is gonna be exciting. Plus the story seems interesting, with the big budget and everything. I'm really hoping that it wont be disappointing, like some drama that I know.

Is this a bad company? 

Looking forward to it! Hoping for a good script. I'm having Haoran withdrawals.

Ah... I just realised who Chen Ruo Xuan is. He's the lead character in Psychological Crimes. Very convoluted series but interesting after a twisted fashion. A kind of Luther meets Criminal Minds. CRX seems to be another genuinely talented young actor.

 

He and Liu Hao Ran are shaping up to be quite an intriguing combination.

Yeah, he was Fang Mu in Evil Minds. I'm so curious to watch his performance. Honestly, I only like him in there. I dont like his other dramas after that. And, what makes me even more curious is how he will act as the 2nd lead in this drama. I heard that his character is supposed to be a badass and a fighter, which sounded different with his usually calm quiet characters. On the other hand, LHR's character is the gentle and weak(physically) one here.

*LOL* Me too :tongue:

 

There are many bad adaptations, and the previous Novoland adaptations didnt perform too well. I'm worried about the script/storyline.

As long as like the script, I'll be happy with it:D I guess all we can do is wait. :mellow:

It seems that he's in Seige in the Fog as well... Murong Feng I believe. The lad does get around. 

 

Anyway, if I do decide to watch this installment of Novoland, it will be for Liu Haoran. I abandoned the Tribes and Empires ship around Episode 40 something. Sound and fury... but not much movement. I'm not optimistic about Eagle Eye and I detest this new trend of incomplete C dramas.

I havent watched T&E, but I heard so many bad things about it so I got traumatized as well :tongue: . I also dont like that trend, so ..yeah..I'll just wait and see without being too excited about it.

 

News that I got from mydramalist . it says "first season" :

A clip about the architecture, etiquette, weapons, costumes etc. They are not CGI. The transition effects are only used in this teaser. 

 

Filming clip of the male lead Liu Haoran.

 

It said this is the OST (no mention of singer's name)....but i am not 100% sure. Anyway it uses a previous clip about the chars and some poster pics. The eng sub explain abit on the story.

I would watch this for the cinematography alone to be honest. It's absolutely a feast for the eyes. Gorgeous set pieces and outdoor settings. Very much along the lines of Tribes and Empires. And of course for Liu Haoran as well. I loved him so much in NiF 2 and this looks like plump role for him. Seems like we'll be getting him undubbed this time round.

 

Great looking trailer.
