  1. Can ZLY hold all these famed goddess as the Queen? The supporting cast is like a who’s who’s of the 2000s goddess, we just need to rope in Gao Yuanyuan, Liu Yifei and Zhang Zhiyi to complete the list.


      1. I can’t imagine LT as Liying’s follower tho…she had such a strong presence. OOh I would love it if she plays some evil role tho! GAH! 11 more months….

  2. WHAAAAT!!!? Liu Tao is joining Monkey king 3!!!!? OMG best news ever! =D I’m even more excited for this film now!!! Though I can’t imagine what role she’ll play….not one of Liying’s subject I assume….


    1. I think she will play a powerful role. I just see her as being a really powerful female character, maybe even evil. She can pull it off.
      Super happy she was casted.
