Inheritance and breakthroughs are the experience of "The Wandering Earth" with multiple successes in economics, society and reputation. This paper explores the success factors of "The Wandering Earth": the philosophical interpretation of the theme "humanity destiny community"; the perfect balance of scientific knowledge and audience orientation to construct a passionate plot of imagination; and the rational thinking of the domestic hard science fiction production peak. It will help us to understand the current market demand for science fiction movies, and provide reference for Chinese science fiction movies to create more outstanding works and catch up with the world's advanced level.
