The original Monkey series was a cult hit with its kung fu action and catchy intro so when a revival was announced late last year we had cautious optimism. This week ABC released it’s first trailer for the new series which starts this month!

The new series made in New Zealand continues following the Monkey King, Tripitaka, Pigsy and Sandy looks to be a reboot of the original series based on a much older tale. Set to air on ABC Me and ABC iView on the 28th of this month it looks to capture some of the feel of the original with not taking itself too serious but still delivering some Kung Fu action.

You can check out the full trailer below but what do you think? Are you looking forward to more new Monkey or are you trying to hunt down the original series to binge instead? Let us know in the comments down below:
