Over the weekend, Disney held a special premiere of the upcoming Disney+ Original series “American Born Chinese”, at the iconic Radio City Music Hall in New York City. “American Born Chinese,” based on the award-winning graphic novel by Gene Luen Yang, from Disney Branded Television and produced by 20th Television, debuts with all episodes on May 24th 2023, on Disney+.

“American Born Chinese” chronicles the trials and tribulations of a regular American teenager whose life is forever changed when he befriends the son of a mythological god. This is the story of a young man’s battle for his own identity, told through family, comedy, and action-packed Kung-Fu.

Academy Award winners Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan joined fellow castmates, Ben Wang, International Emmy Award Nominee Yeo Yann Yann, Chin Han, Daniel Wu,  Jimmy Liu and Sydney Taylor on the red carpet.

Also in attendance were members of the series’ creative team, including Executive Producer Melvin Mar, Executive Producer and author of the graphic novel Gene Luen Yang. Famed fashion designer, Phillip Lim, who consulted on the series, also stepped out.   The screening was followed by a cast Q&A moderated by ABC News’ Juju Chang.
