Rob, the story of the Monkey King, or just "Monkey," has been the subject of who knows how many books, operas, TV series, movies, plays, anime, manga, even video games, since the original Ming Dynasty novel cited by Ogen.
Stephen Chow's latest, "Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons" is a prequel to the Monkey legend, and back in the 90`s he starred in Jeffrey Lau`s "A Chinese Odyssey," yet another take on the story. In the 60`s, The Shaw Brothers made a series of films based on "Journey to the West."
Hell, even the Sci-Fi Channel did a mini-series based on characters from the Monkey legend called "The Lost Empire."
