Gorillaz Olympic animation

Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett have created the title sequence for the BBC's UK Olympic coverage. The animation featrues Monkey, Pigsy and Sandy in Hewlett's superb style. They head off on a "Journey to the East", based on the classical Chinese novel, "Journey to the West". You can watch it here. There opera 'Monkey: Journey To The West' opens in London tonight at the Royal Opera House. We'll be there tomorrow, so we'll let you know how it goes. Maybe it'll come to the new Oslo Opera House one day?
