The creators of the original return with Monkey King 2 西游记之孙悟空三打白骨精 and even coincided its premiere to commence on the Year of the Monkey, no doubt as a gimmick to entice viewers to go bananas for it.
Aaron Kwok returns but instead of Bull Demon King, he takes on the titular role as the Monkey King while the rest of the cast includes Feng Shao Feng (Ice Fantasy), Gong Li, Xiao Sheng Yang, Luo Zhong Qian and Kelly Chen.
The story follows a familiar setup told over and over in the context of Journey to the West. A villain plots to capture Tang Seng and she is Bai Gu Jing, Monkey King’s long time nemesis.
