Monkey King 3: Land of Beauty 西游记之女儿国 is the third film in director Cheang Pou-soi’s The Monkey King series, and stars Aaron Kwok (Eternal Wave) as Monkey King Sun Wukong, Feng Shaofeng (The Starry Night, The Starry Sea) as his master Tang Sanzang and Zhao Liying (Eternal Wave) as ruler of the Women’s Kingdom. Henry Lau’s cover of Love of a Maiden has been chosen as the ending theme song, though all other arrangements pale in comparison to Jane Zhang and Li Ronghao’s theme song (MV).
Tang Seng and his disciples Sun Wukong, Zhu Bajie (Xiao Shenyang) and Sha Wujing (Him Law) anger the River God (Lin Chi-ling) on their journey to the west, and accidentally enter Western Liang, a land of beauty ruled by women. They view men as their biggest enemies, and are especially hostile to their new visitors due to an old prophecy that stated the kingdom would come to an end when a monk arrives with a monkey, a pig and a blue-skinned person.
Costars include Liu Tao as the merciful bodhisattva Guanyin and Gigi Leung as the high priest. The film will hit cinemas on February 16th (Chinese New Year).
