The first trailer for Netflix’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny”

The first trailer for Netflix‘s followup to the Oscar-winning Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is here, giving us our first real glimpse at how the streaming company plans to take on the Wuxia classic.

Here, Michelle Yeoh has reprised her role as Yu Shu Lien, who must now strive to protect the legendary Green Destiny sword, which once belonged to legendary swordsman Li Mu Bai, from an evil warlord. She’s joined by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Donnie Yen and former Glee star Harry Shum, Jr.

Judging from the plentiful use of old-school wire work and VFX, the film should hopefully appeal to both old and new martial arts movie fans alike. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny hits select IMAX theaters and Netflix on February 26th.
