American Born Chinese’ First Look

In the upcoming Disney+ series American Born Chinese, Michelle Yeoh plays a goddess from mythology. During the D23 Expo,

Disney showed a featurette for their new show, which is based on a graphic novel by Gene Luen Yang that mixes different types of stories.

In the above clip, Yeoh adds, "It's a lot of fun, there's a lot of magic, and there's a lot of kickass action." "It's a magical trip, and that's what

Disney+ is all about," Yeoh says later. American Born Chinese is the narrative of Jin Wang (Ben Wang), an average high school student

juggling his social life and family obligations. Even more worlds clash when Jin meets a new student on the first day of school, and he becomes unwillingly engaged

in a fight between Chinese mythological gods. Wang is joined by Yeo Yann Yann as Christine Wang, Chin Han as Simon Wang,

, Ke Huy Quan as Freddy Wong, Jimmy Liu as Wei-Chen, Sydney Taylor as Amelia, Daniel Wu as Sun Wukong, "The Monkey King," and Yeoh as Guanyin
