The 'A Journey To The West' Prequel 'WuKong' Is A SPFX Love-Fest And Nothing Else

Good luck staying awake in the first hour.

Wukong (TBA)

Starring Eddie Peng, Shawn Yue

Directed by Derek Kwok

In recent years, there’ve been no shortage of movies about Sun Wukong, the Monkey King — as evidenced by Stephen Chow’s Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons; and Cheang Pou-Soi’s The Monkey King.

And now there’s Wukong by Derek Kwok — who co-directed Conquering the Demons — with Eddie Peng in the title role. Set in a deity academy (how very X-Men: First Class) 500 years before SWK’s heavenly uprising, the prequel sees the simian immortal and Co. (including Shawn Yue and Oho Ou) involved in a celestial conspiracy.

Forget the characters or the plot, Kwok is more interested in showcasing the SPFX fireworks. (**)
