Monkie Kid was conceived in 2018 in the LEGO Shanghai Hub by Simon Lucas, Neville Lin and Dennis Fong. While LEGO had an audience in China and had previously released Chinese New Year sets, this was the first time the company had considered an entire product line based on a Chinese theme. The show was created to tap into the market and to create a unique twist into the popular Journey to the West story.[6]

The sets and show were being created by an international team of people from the United States, Denmark and China. Starting in 2019, the team had six months to design the sets and story before being shown in a consumer test. Jeremy Adams was then brought onto the team to study the culture and write for the show. Flying Bark Productions was chosen for handling the storyboarding and animation after LEGO was shown several studio pitches.[7] After showing off a first animatic of the pilot episode, Xiaodong Wen was promoted as producer of the series and brought into the team to help revise the overall story.[6]

After the consumer test was proven to be successful, Monkie Kid was ready for launch on May 15th 2020, with the series eventually premiering in China on May 29th.

Trivia

  • According to Jeremy Adams, Monkie Kid isn't a direct representation to Journey to the West, as it would give the characters and plot more development for the show, and help people learn more about the Chinese novel.
    • This explains why most of the characters from Journey to the West have their names and/or history altered in the show.[8]
