近日,央视英文版《西游记》走红了

剧中的经典台词变成了英文,但配音演员的声线又与原版很贴近,让不少网友感到新奇又亲切。



在英文版的《西游记》中,悟空(Monkey)、八戒(Pigsy)和沙僧(Sandy)都有了自己的英文名。

我们熟知的地名也都有了它们的英文叫法,比如花果山(Flower and Fruit Mountain)、水帘洞(Water Curtain Cave)和东海龙宫(Dragon Palace of the Eastern Sea)。

大圣(Great Sage)、定海神针(Tide Control Pillar)这些耳熟能详的名称也都被翻译成了英文。

在一些大家倒背如流的片段里,孙悟空和银角大王会用英文battle,妖精对唐僧的称呼也是一口一个“honey”,八戒会叫猴哥 “brother”,沙僧也会揶揄地称猪八戒为“Mr. Pig”(姓猪的)。



电视剧《西游记》于1986年在央视首播,堪称最家喻户晓的国产电视剧。而这次英文版《西游记》的走红,又让这个版本在各大视频平台上火了一次。那些经典台词被译成英文后,更让大家感到耳目一新了。

我叫你一声,你敢答应吗?

Dare you answer me when I call your name?

你是猴子请来的救兵吗?

Did the ape send you?

俺老孙是花果山水帘洞洞主。

I'm the King of Water Curtain Cave on Flower and Fruit Mountain.

除此之外,在唐僧和八戒误喝了子母河(Motherhood River)的水,险些要“怀孕”的桥段中,用英文哭着喊着的八戒也被很多网友讨论。

城外那条河叫做子母河,我国二十以上之人才敢喝那河中水,喝了便要降生孩儿。你师傅和你师弟喝了子母河的水,成了胎气,想是要生娃娃了。

The river you drank from is Motherhood River. Only those over twenty in our country drink from the river, which makes us pregnant. I'm afraid your master and brother are pregnant now.

不少网友在看过片段后表示:这些台词熟悉到英文我都能听懂了。如果英语考试有这个,那还不得考满分吗?



也有一些网友在看过片段之后开始对其他英文翻译感到好奇:




据极目新闻消息,英文版本是于去年在央视某视频平台上线的,以往只在英语教学圈子里流传,没想到时隔一年就成为了各大短视频平台的焦点。



所以如果你想在重温经典的同时又学习英语、练习听力,英文版的《西游记》是个不错的选择哦。
