'The New Legends of Monkey' On Netflix Is A Campy Adventure Epic Netflix Overflowing with Diversity - via Decider
Whitewashing is a serious problem in Hollywood. Asian characters are already underrepresented in American film and television, and that racial oversight costs actors jobs. However, at least in The Legends of New Monkey’s case, the term “whitewashing” isn’t entirely accurate. Though the series strips its source material of much of its overt Chinese influence, it does so to turn this universe into a deeply diverse world. The Legends of New Monkey is practically overflowing with diversity, actors of all nationalities filling out a fantasy world that in other franchises are typically only reserved for white actors (looking at you, Game of Thrones). That diversity applies to the show’s gender balance as well. Two of the show’s main characters — Tripitaka (Luciane Buchanan) and Sandy (Emilie Cocquerel) — are played by women, adding more dimension to the original’s all-male lineup. But it’s conflicting to see a show embrace its diversity as it distances itself from its source material.
