The mischievous Monkey King's early "animated" misadventures
11 June 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Here is another Chinese animated film I loved after watching it online

  • Uproar in Heaven. Made in 1965 and based on the classic mythological


novel Journey to the West, the film covers the mischievous Monkey King's early misadventures from the novel, like rebelling against the Jade Emperor of Heaven.

Journey to the West is another classic story that intrigues me, and also got me into Literature from other countries. I remember seeing a animated TV series of Journey to the West made in 1999 and an OAV (Original Animated Video) movie, that is edited from the TV series, called The Legends of the Monkey King, made in 2002 - of course it was dubbed in English. After watching Uproar in Heaven, I'd concluded that I love the film then any adaptation of Journey to the West.

So overall I love this film, and I love the character designs in the film - especially for the Monkeys, they'll so cute!
