Journey to the West rebooted as The Legend of Monkey


The Legend of Monkey is based on the Chinese novel Journey to the West. As can be seen in the promotion shot of the cast there are a few tweaks to the character line up this time around.

Full story at Variety.

Quote:
“The mythical tale of the Monkey King is a story that continues to captivate global audiences,” said Michael Carrington, head of children’s at ABC Television. “We can’t wait for fans to see this new series that features the heroes they love, and we are just as excited to introduce this re-imagined magical and exciting world to a whole new generation of viewers.”

Told in ten 30-minute episodes, the story follows a teenage girl and a trio of fallen gods as they embark on a perilous journey to end a demonic reign of chaos and restore balance to their world. It stars includes Chai Hansen, Luciane Buchanan, Josh Thomson and Emilie Cocquerel.

Gerard Johnstone is lead director on the series, with Jacquelin Perske heading a writing team that includes Craig Irvin and Samantha Strauss. Irvin will also direct some episodes.

“The Legend of Monkey” is an Australian-New Zealand co-production for ABC Australia, TVNZ and Netflix, with key investment from Screen Australia in association with Screen NSW, Fulcrum Media Finance and the New Zealand Screen Production Grant.

Oh, good. Another version of Journey to the West.

This will go perfectly alongside Dragon Ball, Into the Badlands, Monkey Magic and the endless pile of other adaptations.

Thank God.

They lost me at "teenage girl" then completely sank the ship when I looked at the production video. Hopefully it will be ironically funny like Xena and Hercules, and not stupid funny for being so completely shit.

That would be badass, so of course that's not what they're doing.

And I think "ABC" in this case is Australian Broadcasting Company...not the same people that do the super cheesy Once Upon A Time.
