“We all have the same dream with the aim to promote China’s excellent traditional culture and a tribute to the predecessors in the field of Taiji, Kung Fu and Martial Arts. The timing seems to be perfect and everyone involved in this project were so enthusiastic in making it happen,” Li was quoted as saying when the film was announced in October.
Jet Li would later post the film in its entirety on his Facebook page with permission from Youkou. He also placed an announcement on his website, saying: “GSD is finally here. The wait is over and here is the FULL VERSION of the film.”
