It’s an Everything Everywhere All At Once reunion! Except, this time we’re not watching Oscar-winning actress Michelle Yeoh save the entire universe from a multidimensional rupture.
American Born Chinese, premiering Wednesday (May 24) on Disney+, aims to focus on the Chinese-American experience. Based on the bestselling, award-winning graphic novel of the same name by Gene Luen Yang, the series tells the story of Jin Wang (played by Ben Wang), a high schooler dealing with the complexities of being a teen who is tasked with showing the new student, Wei-Chen (played by Jim Liu), around school. What happens next is an action-filled adventure as Wang becomes embroiled in a battle between mythical Chinese gods.
Everything All At Once actors including Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu and Ke Huy Quan are also featured in the show as the Chinese goddesses Guanyin and Shiji Niangniang, and Freddy Wong a fictitious ’90s sitcom star.
The show will span eight episodes total and features comedy, adventure and Kung-Fu. In order to catch the premiere and every episode following it, check out how to watch the series below.
