One of the elements that stands out in the film is the incorporation of a homoparental family, a deaf-mute superhero, as well as a cast made up of actors of different nationalities.

In this regard, Zhao stated that he hopes to see this project become a source of inspiration for audiences around the world, especially for the new generations.

“When children and young people see themselves in such a big and epic story, it helps them dream bigger, it allows many people around the world to see a version of themselves on screen, people with whom they are familiar. That makes them connect with them and their stories ”.
