Disney has announced that the cast and creative team of the Disney+ Original series, “American Born Chinese”, are hosting a panel at the New York Comic-Con panel on October 7th at 12:30 PM ET on the main stage!
The event will be moderated by Juju Chang and include a Q&A to treat audiences to behind-the-scenes details about the making of the series and a first look of the action-packed series. Panellists include Daniel Wu, Ben Wang, Kelvin Yu, Gene Luen Yang and Destin Daniel Cretton.
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.
At last month’s D23 Expo event, a featurette was released, giving us a first look at the series.
“American Born Chinese” is a Disney+ Original series produced by 20th Television. Emmy Award-winning writer/producer Kelvin Yu (“Bob’s Burgers,” “Central Park”) serves as executive producer and showrunner. Destin Daniel Cretton (Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” “Short Term 12”) is set to direct and serves as executive producer, alongside Melvin Mar and Jake Kasdan (both of “Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.” for Disney+, “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “Jumanji: The Next Level” feature films), Erin O’Malley (“Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.”), Asher Goldstein (“Short Term 12,” “Just Mercy”) and Gene Luen Yang.
