"I need your help with my quest to stop the uprising." Disney+ has debuted the full official trailer for the action comedy series titled American Born Chinese, launching in May for streaming on Disney+. The title comes directly from the graphic novel of the same name from Gene Luen Yang. The series follows Jin Wang, an average teen 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… He discovers he's a "guide" to help stop an uprising from another dimension. The fantasy series stars Ben Wang as Jin Wang, including 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. They're really hoping to borrow all that buzz from Everything Everywhere All at Once to get people into this series next, it just doesn't look that good… A muddled attempt at storytelling without any interesting action in any of this footage. Take a look.
Here's the full official trailer (+ posters) for Disney+'s series American Born Chinese, from YouTube:
