The Monkey King Returns in 3D

Originally released in the 1960s, the multiple award winning animated film “Monkey Makes Havoc in Heaven” is arguably one of the most famous Chinese cartoons of all time, and the new generation may get a chance to see it in a whole new light, as t he film is scheduled for a 3D remake to be released in January. “Havoc in Heaven” was created and released during the 1960s, when the Chinese animation industry is at its healthiest. Based on one of the most famous classic Chinese stories, Journey to the West, the film follows the Monkey King Sun Wukong as he rebels against the Jade Emperor of Heaven.

Journey to the west’s impact on cartoons is huge, having been the influence behind massively popular franchises such as Dragonball, Gensōmaden Saiyūki, and countless of others, with story elements being borrowed even by modern western fiction.

Yan Dingxian, the 75-year-old Animation and Graphic Designer of the original and the 3D remake says that they will preserve the look of the 1960s version, with the 3D remake designed with the same art style as the original.

“Monkey Makes Havoc in Heaven” is scheduled for screening during the winter break.
