    Another potential Monkey Kingdom theme park is planned - this time in the Nanchuan district of Chongqing. On May 13, 2020, the Chongqing government announced an agreement with Shanghai Jizhong Cultural Development Co., Ltd. to develop a 5 billion yuan "Nanchuan Monkey Kingdom Theme Park" themed to "Journey to the West"

    No other details have been announced yet but if this project does move forward unlike the other Monkey Kingdom theme parks, this thread will be dedicated to the new Chongqing park.


  3. Here are some additional images of Legacy Entertainment's theme park design for the Monkey Kingdom integrated resort in China. Multiple versions of the 'Monkey Kingdom' theme park concept were developed and presented over the years, and these concept art images represent the version developed for an island in Changsha.

  4. Famed Chinese film and television director Zhang Jizhong believed that instead of importing western brands like Disney and Universal, China should be creating its own IP which could be exported to the rest of the world. In collaboration with private industry development partners, he selected Legacy Entertainment to develop the design of his vision for a Monkey Kingdom theme park. A team of top talent, including Christopher Smith, John Horny, and Greg Pro created these incredible images of the park and some of its signature attractions.

    Construction on this park was supposed to begin in August 2017 in Jinan, China. As of mid-March 2018 there is no sign of any construction. According to a local government official the plans submitted for the theme park are in need of revisions but Zhonghong has yet to submit the revisions. A Jinan real estate industry insider revealed that because Zhonghong is in a capital crisis, the theme park project may be sold to another company in the future. The local government is supposedly putting pressure on Zhonghong. Because of Zhonghong’s current financial situation, they may not be able to continue to withdraw large sums of money to build Monkey Kingdom.
