The Monkey King 2

 
The Monkey King 2 is a 2016 Hong Kong-Chinese fantasy film based on the classic novel Journey to the West by Wu Cheng'en. The film was shot in 3D and is a sequel to the 2014 box office hit The Monkey King with Cheang Pou-soi returning as director and Sammo Hung as action director, who replaces Donnie Yen's role from the previous installment. Film stars Aaron Kwok, who portrayed the main antagonist in the previous installment, as the film's titular protagonist, who also replaces Yen from the previous installment. It was released in the United States on 5 February, in Hong Kong on 6 February and in China on 8 February 2016, the first day of the Chinese New Year holiday period.

The film is based on selected chapters of Wu Cheng'en's classical novel Journey to the West and tells the story of how the young monk Tang Sanzang's travels brings him to the Five fingers mountain and meets Sun Wukong where he's trapped beneath. It is there that they form a bond as Master and disciple. In their travels, they will also meet Zhu Ba Jie and Sha Wu Jing whom also become the disciples of Sanzang and join them in their travels to Leiyin Temple at Vulture Peak in India to collect scriptures to bring back to Chang An. This sequel focuses on the story arc of the White Bone Demon who is hell bent on consuming San Zang, because this grants her Demon-hood for all eternity as she did not want to go through reincarnation.
