The SVOD platform will publish a new adaptation of this work, which is one of the most famous in Chinese literature. A very old animated film was released in China in the 1960s, and a first adaptation saw the light of day as early as 2014.
THE KING OF THE APES
And so it is this work that American society will interpret in a new program. You have to know, but Sun Wukong, by his original name, has inspired countless other programs, notably Dragon Ball. In the original work, The Monkey King was born from a rock struck by lightning that gave rise to a stone egg. This particular monkey will fight for the good of its people, its gods, demons and dragons. This animated feature film is itself inspired by the 16th century story Voyage en Occident. The Monkey King is directed by Stephen Chow, a great director from Hong Kong who directed The Mermaid (2016) and Crazy Kung-Fu (2004) in particular.
