TED-ED | The myth of the original star-crossed lovers

In the court of the Jade Emperor, a young princess had a special skill: she could pluck clouds from the sky and spin them into the softest robes. But her craft was the same day after day, and she longed for new inspiration. So the Queen Mother granted her permission to visit Earth. The weaver soon fell in love with the land— and a cowherd.

TED-Ed commissioned us to make a video to accompany their lesson about this Chinese mythological tale. You can view the full lesson here:
