China-made animated feature "Monkey King: The Hero is Back" had raked in 620 million yuan (US 99.8 million) as of 4 pm July 25, snatching the throne of the highest grossing animated film in Chinese cinemas formerly held by "Kung Fu Panda 2."

"Monkey King," a 3D animated adaption of the classical epic "A Journey to the West," opened in the Chinese mainland on July 10. Its latest box office figure was announced on Saturday by Liu Zhijiang, general manager of HG Entertainment, the film's production company.

Previously, "Kung Fu Panda 2" had maintained the box office record for animated features for four years with 617 million yuan earned in Chinese cinemas.
