BEIJING: The animated version of Journey to the West, a Chinese epic about the journey of monk Huang Tsang or Xuanzang protected by a playful monkey character to India, has become the highest grossing animated film in China. It has already surpassed the record held by the popular animation film, Kung Fu Panda 2.
Sun Wukong, the monkey king, has some attributes, fighting and magical skills as India’s Lord Hanuman. He protects the 6th century monk using a range of skills and guile to defeat evil characters in the epic. The Chinese version of Monkey King is playful and occasionally mischievous making him a darling of children in China. He is also the reason why Chinese children learn about India from early childhood.
The China-made animated feature “Monkey King: The Hero is Back” had raked in $99.8 million until Saturday afternoon. The film,which crossed the $66 million earning record of Hollywood made Kung Fu Panda2 is seen in China as a big success after years of attempting to produce a successful animated film that can rival imported ones.
Dreamworks which is making Kung Fu Panda3 is expected to challenge it, industry sources said.
The story centered around western China and central Asia, there was nothing on India at all
Sunwukong is mostly oriented from Hanuman，It is the favourite charecter among chinese
