LEAGUE OF GODS is as an epic tale of the timeless struggle between dark and light set against a re-imagined backdrop of classical Chinese mythology. In a parallel universe resembling the fading Shang Dynasty, it tells the story of a kingdom in transformation and the courageous warriors who overcome many obstacles so the light can prevail. Shot in Beijing and mixing drama, martial arts, romance and magic, LEAGUE OF GODS follows Ji Lei, the sole survivor of the Wing Tribe, as he confronts demons and supernatural forces to regain the magical powers bequeathed to him by his slain parents, taking his place as a Warrior of Light. Working with leading Chinese actors and crew as well as with post-production facilities in over 12 countries, China Star Studio has created a world full of imagination, heroism and hope. An imaginary time zone parallel to the Shang Dynasty, 1000 BC: The kingdom is in trouble. The autocratic King Zhou, entranced by his favorite concubine, Daji, a vixen spirit in disguise, oppresses the people and banishes all opposition. A band of rebellious warriors from the Ji clan unites allied forces to overthrow the tyrant. Amongst them is Ji Lei, an orphan of the Wing Tribe who was rescued as a child by the powerful Wizard Jiang on the fateful day of his Wing initiation into adulthood when his parents were massacred by the tyrant. Haunted by his loss, Ji Lei is sent by the Wizard on a mission to seek the Sword of Light that will awaken the courage to spread his hidden wings and help restore balance to the world.
