The cast of “Everything Everywhere and At Once” has reunited for the Disney+ series

A Chinese Born in America tells the story of Jin Wang (Ben Wang), a child of Chinese immigrants who finds it difficult to feel comfortable in his predominantly white suburb. These efforts are further complicated when a new classmate arrives from China, leaving him with no choice but to confront his identity. Oh, and in the midst of this crisis, Jin unexpectedly enters the world of Chinese mythology, as seen through smoldering battle sequences, sweeping landscapes, and ominous declarations. “The gate between earth and heaven opens,” the teaser announces. “The fate of your world hangs in the balance.” This isn’t a bargain scenario for a teenage boy, but it’s not something Jin can handle! (Probably.)

As for the “All at once” reunion, Michelle Yeoh and Ke Hue Quan have the most prominent roles in the series. Yeo plays the role of Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy, while Kuan plays Freddy Wong, a much-changed character from the novel. Scene stealer Stephanie Hsu will guest star Shidi Nianyang, the Stone Goddess, while James Hong will appear as the Jade Emperor. Additional guest stars include Ronnie Chienga (“M3GAN”), Jimmy O. Young (“Silicon Valley”), Rosalie Chang (“Blush”) and Leonard Wu (“The Ghost of Tsushima”).

Bob’s Burgers vet Kelvin Yu serves as showrunner and executive producer, while Destin Daniel Cretton (Shan-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings) directed several episodes.

A Chinese Born in America will debut on May 24, 2023 on Disney+.
