Monkey Magic (R2/UK BD) in February
Cine Asia have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Monkey Magic on 23rd February 2009. Fuji TV broadcast a modern adaptation of Wu Chengen's classic Chinese novel, "Journey to the West" in Japan back in 2006, and this is the movie-spin off. Known as The Adventures of Super Monkey internationally, the film is being released here in the UK as Monkey Magic, and it is a brand new, live-action feature length adventure featuring the further comic exploits of Tripitaka, Sandy, Pigsy and, of course, the irrepressible Monkey.
Available on DVD (£15.99 RRP) and Blu-ray Disc (£19.99 RRP), the main feature is presented in anamorphic widescreen on DVD and 1080P widescreen on Blu-ray. Both feature Japanese DD2.0 and DD5.1 Surround audio and English subtitles. The only extras are TV Spots, a Trailer and a single-page of text entitled "Journey to the West" about the origins of the film. Extras on the Blu-ray are presented in SD NTSC. The disc is coded for all regions (A, B and C).
