Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan Reunite in Trailer for American Born Chinese
Published 11 months ago
We may not be getting a sequel to Everything Everywhere All at Once, but the cast of the film is reuniting for an upcoming Disney+ series called American Born Chinese. Disney just dropped a new trailer, and it features stars Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and more.
Check this out:
The series description reads:
The story of Jin Wang, an average teenager juggling his high-school social life with his immigrant home life. When he meets a new foreign student on the first day of the school year, even more worlds collide as Jin is unwittingly entangled in a battle of Chinese mythological gods. The action-comedy explores issues of identity, culture, and family.
The series is actually based on the graphic novel American Born Chinese by author Gene Luen Yang which came out back in 2006 and was a finalist for the National Book Awards in the Young People’s Literature category. The show also has Shang-Chi director Destin Daniel Cretton, who should stretch his Disney action muscles before jumping in to direct Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
Going back to Yeoh and Kuan though, they’re not the only EEAAO co-stars coming to the series. Stephanie Hsu (Jobu Tupaki) is also going to be appearing in the show as well as James Hong (Gong Gong).
I think it’s also worth noting that Turning Red star Rosalie Chiang is also going to be appearing in the series, but I doubt her character can turn into a giant red panda at will.
American Born Chinese starts streaming on Disney+ on May 24.
