Best known for their collaborative music project, Gorillaz‘s Jamie Hewlett and Damon Albarn have been commissioned by BBC Sports to create a short animated film for the upcoming Beijing Olympics. Based on the classic Chinese tale, “Journey to the West,” the new story is entitled “Journey to the East” and features a more modern-looking Monkey King, who must travel on a cloud to the newly opened Bird’s Nest.
