So, a few days back I was searching for references for future drawings, and I don't know how this happened but I came across a trailer for a chinese animated movie called "Small door Gods" I think and I didn't get too much hyped because it was chinese animation(I don't hate it but, during my life I was told chinese animation was really bad.), but decided to watch the trailer anyway. Looks like I was mistaken XD It was pretty good.
While watching it, something cought my eye on a playlist. There was a trailer for a.....Monkey King movie, also chinese. This actually made me wonder and started to watch it. It was actually very cool. So, I tried to search for the movie which turned out very difficult. Especially with english subs.
Yesterday I found a website where we could watch the movie but I saved it for today.
In this exact moment, I finished watching the movie and although the akward translation and storyboard/scene changing(and sometimes animation)....it was so beautiful....the story was superb and the animation/CG amazing!! ALSO THE COLORS *3* I loved it so much! The character evolution is magnificent as well for the art. OMG guys you really need to watch it....I fell really in love with this movie. The chinese made an awesome job! The theme/final song was also very beautiful, and sad(I cried internally).
I always felt love for asian legends and story-telling, and one of my favorite chinese legends was actually "Son Wukong, the Monkey King"/"The Jorney to the East"; but I never read the original story. This movie made me want to read it.
For those interested, the movie is called "The Monkey King: The hero Returns. You can watch it here -> engsub.org/xem-phim-monkey-kin…
