Washington [US]: Hollywood famous person Michelle Yeoh portrays the role of a deity within the new Disney Plus collection ‘American Born Chinese.’
According to Deadline, ‘American Born Chinese’ is based on a genre-hopping graphic novel through Gene Luen Yang. Disney unveiled a featurette of the brand new collection at some stage in the D23 Expo.
In the film ‘American Born Chinese’, Ben Wang’s man or woman Jin Wang (a regular adolescent blending his excessive college social lifestyle with his domestic life) relates his narrative. Jin by accident becomes concerned in a war between Chinese mythological gods when he meets a new pupil on the primary day of the faculty year.
“It’s a lot of fun, it’s a log of magic, it’s a lot of badass action,” Yeoh says in the clip which you can view in the video above. Yeoh adds later on, “It is a magical ride and that’s what Disney+ is all about.”
Yeo Yann Yann performs Christine Wang, Chin Han plays Simon Wang, Ke Huy Quan plays Freddy Wong, Jimmy Liu performs Wei-Chen, Sydney Taylor performs Amelia, Daniel Wu plays Sun Wukong “The Monkey King,” and Yeoh plays Guanyin. They all appear alongside Wang.
