Just Another Pandora's Box (simplified Chinese: 越光宝盒traditional Chinese: 越光寶盒pinyin: Yuèguāng Bǎohé) is a Hong Kong film being directed by Jeffrey Lau and set to be released in March 18, 2010. It is a spiritual successor to Lau's two-part 1994 film A Chinese Odyssey, taking place in the same world. It will star Ronald Cheng and Betty Sun. Athena Chu, who starred in A Chinese Odyssey, will make a guest appearance.

The film's Chinese title is pun on the Chinese title of the first part of A Chinese Odyssey, 月光寶盒 (simplified Chinese: 月光宝盒). The last three characters of each title are the same, only the first differs; the pronunciations of 月 and 越 are the same in both Cantonese (jyut6) and Mandarin (yuè). The older title translates literally to "Moonlight Magic Box"; in the title of this film, the character for "moon" is replaced by 越, in this context meaning "more" or "surpassing".
