108 Demon-Kings

Synopsis

Blending live action with 2D and 3D animation in a way that’s never before been seen, 108 Demon Kings adapts the Chinese literary classic Water Margin to make a visually bold and humorous adventure aimed at older children and adults. In 12th century China, after the assassination of the king, Prince Duan and his teacher Zhang-The-Perfect are forced to flee the kingdom. Merciless demon kings now terrorize the countryside. Few have seen them, and fewer still have the courage to face them. Prince Duan wants to restore order, but legend has it that defeating the demons requires the courage of 100 tigers, the strength of 1,000 buffaloes, and the cunning of as many serpents, not to mention the luck of the devil. Prince Duan will have to make do with Zhang-The-Perfect’s bewildering proverbs, and the little beggar Pei-Pei’s gift of gab. But the Prince, the monk, and the beggar have one advantage: they’ve never been told that defeating the demon kings is impossible.
