Disney+ is out here singlehandedly preventing boredom for Disney fans around the globe.
With hit shows from Marvel and Star Wars, awesome and entertaining documentaries from Nat Geo and the Disney Parks, and a slew of classic movies, there’s so much to choose from when you’re deciding what to watch next. And coming soon, there’s another show that will be added to that list!
Today, Disney announced the casting list for a brand new show on Disney+ called American Born Chinese, which is set to begin production later this month. The original series is going to feature some awesome stars, including Michelle Yeoh (Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), Ben Wang (MacGyver), and Yeo Yann Yann (Wet Season).
Also on the list we’ve got Daniel Wu (Reminiscence), Ke Huy Quan (Finding ‘Ohana), former Taekwondo champion Jim Liu, and Sydney Taylor (Just Add Magic). The show will follow the story of Jin Wang, who’s “an average teenager juggling his high school social life with his home life.” On the first day of the school year, he meets a new foreign student, and “Jin is unwittingly entangled in a battle of Chinese mythological gods.”
Destin Daniel Cretton will be directing the show and serving as executive producer, alongside Kelvin Yu. Also joining them will be Melvin Mar, Jake Kasdan, Erin O’Malley, Asher Goldstein, and Gene Luen Yang.
