To celebrate Lunar New Year, actor Ben Wang, who stars in the upcoming Disney+ Original live-action series, “American Born Chinese”, recently visited the Disney California Adventure Park.

Based on the graphic novel by Gene Luen Yang, “American Born Chinese” is a genre-hopping action comedy that tells the story of Jin Wang, an average teenager juggling his high school social life with his home life. When he meets a new foreign student on the first day of the school year, even more worlds collide as Jin is unwittingly entangled in a battle of Chinese mythological gods.  The new series is coming to Disney+ later this year.

While visiting Disney California Adventure park, Ben was able to ring in the Year of the Rabbit with some Disney friends, including a special surprise friend, dressed in vibrant Lunar New Year-inspired attire: Oswald the Lucky Rabbit!  Along with Ortensia the cat, who is honouring the Vietnamese celebration of the Year of the Cat.

He was also able to experience the beautiful cultural décor, fun festivities, live performances, and returning fan favourites at this multicultural celebration paying tribute to Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean cultures.


This special event celebrating Lunar New Year is available only at Disney California Adventure park at the Disneyland Resort now through February 15th 2023.
