"The story features different epic characters including the Unicorn, Pegasus, the ancient Greek beauty Helen (the most beautiful woman of Greece and the indirect cause of the Trojan War) and the heroic figure Achilles," Liu added.

"Therefore, it's not only a performance of horses, nor a performance of humans, but a combination of both," he further added.
