The Monkey King hails from the classic Chinese story The Journey to the West. In this animated version, the Monkey King, who had been imprisoned for centuries by the gods for his impudence, is unknowingly released by a child who has fled monsters attacking local villages. Once freed, the adventures begin as Monkey King helps fight the monsters. First-time director Tian Xiaopeng crowdfunded marketing costs for this winner of the 2015 Golden Rooster Award for Best Animated Feature and the Silk Road International Film Festival’s 2015 Animated Film of the Year Award.
