GeekyBubble is back, and this time, it’ll include more pop culture news, especially pertaining to my own personal interests. In a way, this site will act as an outlet for everything that’s not Star Wars, since most of my Star Wars thoughts will appear at TWG.
The first news item I want to mention is the upcoming Netflix series, The Legend of Monkey.
I have to admit that I’m not all that familiar with the plot, which is inspired by the 16th century Chinese fable Journey to the West. In it, a teenage girl and a trio of fallen gods go on a perilous journey in an attempt to bring an end to a demonic reign of chaos and restore balance to the world.
Here’s the reason why I’m so interested: Chai Hansen (the second character from the left). Is it a superficial reason? Maybe, but Chai Hansen has recently become one of my favorite actors, having appeared in Mako Mermaids and The 100. He also comes across as one of the kindest souls out there, so I’m genuinely happy that he’s landed himself another leading role.
Looking forward to the show’s premiere next year!
