The New Legends of Monkey: Season 1

A teenage girl and fallen gods Monkey, Pigsy and Sandy embark on a mission to collect lost scrolls of wisdom in this series inspired by 1970s/1980s Japanese show Monkey (and its own inspiration, 16th Century Chinese fable “Journey to the West”).

Tripitaka (Luciane Buchanan) is entrusted by her murdered scholar father with a crucial mission - to save the earthly realm, overrun by demons who have enslaved humanity. To do so, Tripitaka frees the Monkey King (Chai Hansen) and travels across a fantastical land alongside Pigsy (Josh Thomson) and Sandy (Emilie Cocquerel), finding lost scrolls, the source of enough power to overthrow the demons.
