The high concept re-imagining of the popular ancient myth is coming to TVNZ 2!
Set in a universal ‘neverwhere’ world that is a hybrid of east and west, The Legend of Monkey follows a teenage girl and a trio of fallen gods on a perilous journey as they attempt to bring an end to the demonic reign of chaos and restore balance to their world.
A high-concept re-imagining of an ancient myth, this fantastical journey is fueled by martial arts fighting sequences and extraordinary magical powers whilst exploring the universal themes of identity, family and destiny.
Starring local actors Josh Thomson (Terry Teo, Barefoot Bandits) and Luciane Buchanan (Filthy Rich, Baby Mama’s Club).
Directed by Gerard Johnstone (Housebound, Terry Teo).
Catch new episodes of The New Legends of Monkey on 2 from Friday 20th April, 8pm.
