Following up on last year’s Kingdom II: Harukanara Daichi e (To Distant Lands), more information has arrived for the third entry in the series. The new film now has the official title of Kingdom: Unmei no Honoo (The Flame of Fate) and will adapt the Battle of Bayou and Escape from Zhao arcs when it premieres in Japanese cinemas on July 28, 2023.
All seven of the main cast members—including Kento Yamazaki (Li Xin), Ryo Yoshizawa (Ying Zheng), Kanna Hashimoto (He Liao Diao), Nana Seino (Qiang Lei), Hiroshi Tamaki (Changwen Jun), Koichi Sato (Lü Buwei) and Takao Osawa (Wang Qi )—will return for the third live-action Kingdom film.
Check out a teaser:
Original Kingdom manga author Yasuhisa Hara shared a message and illustration to go along with the news.
The third installment of the “Kingdom” live-action film, “Kingdom: Unmei no Honoo” is set to hit theaters this summer! As some fans may have guessed from the last trailer in the end of the previous film, this film will depict the “Escape from Zhao” and “Battle of Bayou” arcs. 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!
