The first trailer for forthcoming Disney+ series American Born Chinese has arrived.

Starring Everything Everywhere All At Once's Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and Stephanie Hsu, the series is based on Gene Luen Yang's graphic novel of the same name.

It follows teenager Jin (Ben Wang) whose life gets complicated when he meets an exchange student, and the pair become entwined in a battle between Chinese mythological gods threatening everyone on earth.

"The fate of your world hangs in the balance," Yeoh's character Guanyin can be heard saying in the clip."

Oscar-winner Yeoh previously opened up about her involvement in the series in a featurette at D23 expo, promising it would be "badass".

"It's a lot of fun, it's a lot of magic, it's a lot of badass action," she said.

"It is a magical ride, and that's what Disney+ is about, isn't it?"

American Born Chinese will also see the actress reunite with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' Destin Daniel Cretton, who directs the Disney show.
