On the new Monkey [Magic] Apr. 21st, 2017 @ 04:19 pm
Have now seen a picture of the cast of the new version of Monkey/Journey to the West.

Thoughts:

1) Pigsy looks good. Looks "right" for a Pigsy character while still being definitely and clearly different.

2) Tripitaka could go either way, depending on performance. Am vaguely disapproving of visible hair, somehow.

3) Presumably-Sandy looks... well, we'll see, I'm very much withholding judgement.

4) MONKEY LOOKS WRONG

4a) He looks too smouldering.

4b) He looks too tall.

4c) He doesn't look like a monkey.

The original Monkey looked very monkey-like, and frankly, a lot of that was in the hair and makeup and I am very disapproving that new Monkey looks more like Antonio Banderas than a monkey. He also looks all smouldering and serious, and the nature of Monkey was irrepressible!
