Disney+ will launch its upcoming series American born Chinese on May 24 in hopes that the Everything everywhere at once The magic of Michelle Yeoh, Key Huy Quan and Stephanie Hsu boosts the streamer.
American born Chinese is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Gene Luen Yang. It is the story of Jin Wang, an average teenager who is drawn into a battle between Chinese mythological gods by a new foreign student at school.
Hsu is a guest star in the series. The cast also includes Ben Wang (Chang Can Dunk), Yeo Yann Yann (Wet season), Chin Han (Mortal Kombat), Daniel Wu (Reminiscence), former Taekwondo champion Jimmy Liu and Sydney Taylor (Just add magic).
Kelvin Yu (Bob’s Burgers) serves as executive producer and showrunner. Destin Daniel Cretton (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) will direct, in addition to serving as executive producer.
