“Big Hero 6 The Series” is set for an epic debut on the Disney Channel with a premiere weekend event this summer.
The small screen adaptation of the hit Disney animated movie will kick off with back-to-back episodes on Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10 from 9:00-10:00 a.m. EDT/PDT.
Actress Jamie Chung, 35, struck a chord with popular opinions in the Asian American community on the topic of Asian women being typecast as submissive “damsels in distress” needing to be saved by White men.
In an interview with The Korea Times, Chung opened up on the changing roles of women in professional communities with the onset of the #MeToo movement.
In a series of recent tweets, Jamie Chung apologized to Henry Golding for her past comments over his casting on “Crazy Rich Asians”, the movie adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s best-selling novel slated to premiere on a lucky date.
Earlier this year, Chung told CBS News how much she wanted to get a role in the upcoming film, but acknowledged that it sought “someone who’s ethnically Chinese.”
Jamie Chung is clarifying comments she made earlier this week in a CBS News interview about how the casting of half-white actor Henry Golding in the adaptation of “Crazy Rich Asians” was “bullsh*t”.
In a series of tweets and exchanges with followers on Instagram, she says she was criticizing how hypocritical Hollywood can be when it comes to race, rather than the actor the casting directors hired.
“Well, it’s unfortunate but it’s the reality of movie stars. They’re Chinese-backed production companies that are asking to put Damon in ‘Great Wall.’ It is what it is. It’s all about money and capitalism. It’s unfortunate because roles are seldom as they come already,” Chung, 34, told CBS News in an interview.
FOX and Marvel are teaming up for a new action-adventure project featuring characters from the beloved X-Men franchise and Jamie Chung has been cast as one of the lead stars.
According to Marvel, the still unnamed TV series will be written by Matt Nix and directed by Bryan Singer. The main storyline will revolve around two parents who are forced to take their family on the run after discovering that their children have mutant powers. To survive, the family must team up with other mutants who are being persecuted and hunted down by the government.
