The Monkey Prince Movie - a Chinese legend, mixed with Hollywood story-telling, and Japanese animation

Plot synopsis:
“In the near future, a young girl and her baby brother find themselves separated from their parents during an alien invasion. Desperate to be reunited with them, Elle enlists the help of a magical but wayward Monkey Prince banished from his land by his father the King. Together they set off on an incredible journey aided by the Monkey Prince’s special powers and a cast of magical characters they meet along the way; a shape-shifting staff, a ditsy spirit guide, a sentient cloud named Nimbus, and a team of ‘Mini Monkeys’ who can be summoned by the Monkey Prince with just one hair plucked from his head. It’s certainly not all plain sailing; the Monkey Prince is reluctant to change his self-centred ways and Commander Kuroc and his alien army are determined to stop them, but eventually they will learn to work together towards their common goal.”

This looks great, can’t wait to see the whole thing!

The film has yet to get an official release date.
