The Chinese movie version of hit drama “Man from the Stars” has failed to pass China’s censors.

According to a representative, the drama’s concept of an alien residing on earth for 400 years was the main reason why the film failed to pass the country’s censors. The representative also added that they will be re-editing the movie and try again for a chance to release the film in China.

The film version has no new footage, as the cast did not shoot any extra footage for the movie version of “Man from the Stars”. This is a different approach from the drama “Doctor Stranger“, whose cast had three extra days of filming for the Chinese version of the drama. 

The film version of “Man from the Stars” was initially planned to be released in Chinese theaters this summer.
