“Dark forces will be coming” — or so it’s teased in the first look at the Disney+ series American Born Chinese released on Sunday.
In the teaser trailer for the original series, Everything Everywhere All at Once’s Oscar-nominated stars Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and Stephanie Hsu reunite. Throughout the trailer, a new multiverse is teased, with Yeoh shown warning that a “gate between heaven and earth is opening” with the fate of the world “hanging in balance.”
Based on the graphic novel by Gene Luen Yang, American Born Chinese centers on teenager Jin Wang (Ben Wang) who, after meeting a new student on the first day of the school year, is caught in a battle between Chinese mythological gods.
The teaser trailer (below) released ahead of Sunday’s 2023 Oscars, where Everything Everywhere All at Once led the nominations with 11 total, including a historic best actress nom for Yeoh and supporting actor nods for Quan and Hsu.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director Destin Daniel Cretton helms and executive produces the series that also stars Yeo Yann Yann, Chin Han, Jimmy Liu, Sydney Taylor and Daniel Wu.
Disney+ gave the action comedy a straight-to-series order in October 2021. Kelvin Yu and Charles Yu are adapting, with Kelvin Yu serving as showrunner. Melvin Mar and Jake Kasdan also executive produce.
American Born Chinese premieres on May 24.
