2008 Olympics Monkey movie

This short movie is a part of BBC Sport’s marketing campaign for the Olympic Games. The story is based on the classical Chinese novel “Journey to the West”, written in the late 16th century.  In the novel, a Buddhist monk makes a pilgrimage to India accompanied by three disciples, including a monkey.  In BBC Sport’s story, Monkey and friends have to use Olympic disciplines to battle opponents on the way to Beijing.  

Monkey’s creators are the men behind Gorillaz – Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlitt.
