Thailand’s Teen Giant

2 10 2016

Thai movie “Teen Giant”, still in production, has taken a leaf out of Percy Jackson’s book. It aims to keep Thai mythology alive by bringing it to a new, younger audience. Following a now-familiar plotline, a schoolboy who has always suffered from being “different” discovers the key to his true identity, that he is descended from a legendary beast – in this case the fierce yaksha giants who guard Thai temples. Embracing his true self, he is pitted into a battle against other creatures from the Thai netherworld, played out against a contemporary Bangkok backdrop. Looking forward to it!
