Tony Jaa Retires

According to Twitch Tony Jaa has retired from films. It remains unclear why he retired but on Friday, May 28 - Jaa rode an elephant to a Buddhist temple in Surin, Thailand, where he shaved his head, took vows, and was officially ordained as a Buddhist monk.

I think after the troubles of making Ong Bak 2 he probably did not have the heart for films anymore, he may make a return to films one day and we still have Ong Bak 3 to look forward too but it could be the last time we see muay thai, elephant riding madness.

Just because he was ordained as a monk, doesn't mean he retired from films. Most monks only remain a monk for a period of time, in which, we don't know how long it will be when he returns to films, IF he returns. Many of us fans are awaiting his return, but since it is unannounced, we can only go on with our lives and let the man live his peacefully.
