KINGDOM 3: FLAME OF DESTINY Official Trailer Sets Ablaze Online!
Toho And Sony Japan have officially sprung the first trailer for the third installment in the live-action Kingdom saga hereby titled Kingdom 3: Flame Of Destiny, as we know it. Last year’s Kingdom 2: To The Land Of Faraway followed suit with the inaugural 2019 film from director Shinsuke Sato becoming a box office hit all the same, and with a release date currently set for July 28, you can guess Sato is ready to finish things on a truly epic note.
Sato directs from a script by Tsutomu Kuroiwa, taking cues from Yasuhisa Hara’s hit manga. Per Crunchyroll, the new movie “centers on the “Battle of Bayou” arc, where the protagonist Li Xin and Wang Qi stand on the same battlefield for the first time to fight off an invasion by Zhao, and the “Escape from Zhao” arc, which tells Ying Zheng’s unknown past. As Sato noted previously in a post to fans: “Both of these arcs have had an immeasurable impact on Xin and Ying Zheng and their subsequent careers, and the story will be even more epic and dramatic than the previous two films. We hope you will look forward to the day when the world of ‘Kingdom’ once again unfolds on the screen!”
The trailer comes following the new year teaser launch back in December. Kento Yamazaki, Ryo Yoshizawa, Kanna Hashimoto, and Takao Osawa are among the returning roster.
