Trivia

This film had a serious divestment problem because the director rejected the investor's request to alter the script. At last the director had to use his own money to finish the film. when finished, there was no money for advertising. However, the film earned a good reputation after the premiere and drew many fans in a very short period of time. These fans called themselves zi lai shui (tap-water), which means they are willing to advertise the film on social media for free. See more »

Never imagine in this summer, such a Chinese 3d anime could inspire so many people in China where big screen once is full of western heroes,now we have our own hero with such a splendid debut.Thanks to this movie's cast staff,with the awesome 3d effects and well-designed music and scenes full of Chinese traditional cultural elements we regain our belief in China's anime. The last time I was touched by Chinese's anime is the Lotus lantern,but it still fails to bring the glory of Chinese anime time(1964,Havoc in Heaven,1981,The Nine-Colored Deer),now with this movie,we can expect more .May monkey king lead us to the renaissance of china's anime
