"The gate between Earth and Heaven is opening…" "The fate of your world hangs in the balance." Disney+ has revealed a first look teaser trailer for a new streaming series titled American Born Chinese, arriving to watch this summer. The title comes directly from the graphic novel of the same name from Gene Luen Yang. It seems as if Disney decided to jump on the Everything Everywhere All at Once hype, bringing back the four stars of that film and letting them work with Shang-Chi director Destin Daniel Cretton to create this action series. It follows Jin Wang, an average teenager juggling his high-school social life with his home life. When he meets a new foreign student at school, even more worlds collide in his life… The series stars Ben Wang as Jin Wang, along with an epic cast: Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, Yeo Yann Yann, Chin Han, Daniel Wu, Jim Liu, Sydney Taylor, Poppy Liu, Rosalie Chiang, James Hong, + Stephanie Hsu in a guest role. Only a few quick shots in this teaser so far, but it looks like this might be entertaining.
Here's the first look teaser for Disney+'s series American Born Chinese, direct from Disney+'s YouTube:
