On the heels of recent groundbreaking animated films from China (including 2019’s Ne Zha and fall 2020 release Jiang Ziya) comes a spectacular all-new anime action-adventure fantasy from the Middle Kingdom, The Monkey King: Reborn, landing on digital, Blu-ray and DVD December 7 from Well Go USA Entertainment. The royal beast is here unleashed in a new trailer, shared exclusively with Animation Magazine.
Playing off the three hugely popular Monkey King live-action films, The Monkey King: Reborn follows the short-tempered trickster after he is insulted while visiting a temple with his master Tang Monk. Outraged, he destroys a magical tree and accidentally releases the ancient King of Demons, who kidnaps Tang Monk as revenge for his long imprisonment. Now, Monkey King and his fellow disciples must rescue their master within three days, before the demon king regains his full power and unleashes his armies to destroy the Earth.
Directed by Wang Yun Fei (fouru-film Yugo & Lala franchise), The Monkey King: Reborn features an all-new English dub for this release.
