She also reveals some of the movie's new additions, including more villains and a variety of magical creatures. In the movie, these creatures, including several unicorns, are depicted as emerging from the fetal membrane-like wrappings of a magical tree's roots, giving them a unique appearance that resembles wood.

Despite high anticipation before its release, the movie's box office earnings and reviews have been underwhelming. Currently, it has a score of 6.1 out of 10 on the popular review aggregator Douban and has grossed only around 37 million yuan at the box office, ranking third behind Chinese films Post-Truth and Revival.

According to Beijing-based film critic Yuan Yun'er, the changing taste of domestic audiences in recent years has made them more interested in culturally relatable Chinese stories, rather than Hollywood blockbusters packed with visual effects and action.
