The 2000 hit Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was a martial arts film that played out like a piece of beautiful music. The experience was watching art unfold on screen – along with some badass, impeccably choreographed martial arts. On February 26, the follow up to the Ang Lee masterpiece will be released on both IMAX and Netflix. The film is Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny. 

Netflix just released the latest trailer for Sword of Destiny. Michelle Yeoh is back and looking as fierce as ever as the renowned warrior, Yu Shu Lien. In this film, Shu Lien comes out of retirement and fights to keep a great warrior’s sword from an evil warlord. She’s also training a girl who is young and seems to have an impatient and rebellious nature – Oh, teenagers! This will surely have an impact on Shu Lien’s journey.

The trailer is gorgeous. The art direction is epically stunning and the fight choreography is elegant and breath-taking. Add good storytelling to the mix and this film will make any martial arts film fan happy.

The film also stars Donnie Yen, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Harry Shum Jr., Jason Scott Lee and Veronica Ngo.

Official Synopsis:

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny tells an epic story of lost love, young love, a legendary sword and one last opportunity at redemption, set against breathtaking action in an epic martial arts battle between good and evil that will decide the fate of the Martial World.

Here’s the Netflix synopsis from the last trailer, it gives a bit more insight into the film than the generic one above:

In this sequel to “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” four Martial World heroes must keep the legendary Green Destiny sword from villainous Hades Dai.

Watch the trailer and check out the fight on the ice. He kicks up ice from a lake and uses it as a weapon!
