The Monkey King Franchise completed it’s trilogy When the final one hit theaters earlier this year on February 16 .
In The Monkey King 3, Buddhist monk Tang Sanzang (William Feng Shaofeng) and his disciples – Wukong the Monkey King (Aaron Kwok Fu-shing), pig demon Bajie (Xiao Shenyang) and the blue-skinned sand demon Wujing (Him Lo Chung-him) – inadvertently enter the Womanland of Western Liang, a nation populated by women raised to believe that men are fatally deceptive in matters of the heart.
Love nevertheless blossoms between Tang Sanzang and the Womanland’s young queen (Zhao Liying), even though her royal preceptor (Gigi Leung Wing-kei) is hell-bent on sentencing the men to death. As Wukong and Co. search for a way out of this nation surrounded by a vast magical net, it soon transpires, conveniently, that romantic love is the only key to opening the gate. So will Tang Sanzang give up on his sacred mission and stay with the queen?
The film which was made on a 50 million USD budget under performed at the Box Office with a 110 million coming in. The Cheang directed film seemed to have run it’s course and should have been a pack up for the Franchise however it is now official that a 4th installment will take place.
One doesn’t know if the same cast of Monkey King 3 will return (since Monkey king 2 had Donnie Yen and 3 Aron Kwak) but amdb has inside news that the film is on it’s way and in development . An early start date of 2019 is expected but it has not been confirmed.
