Wish Dragon Updates: In the film, Din (Jimmy Wong) is a delivery boy who comes across a teapot containing a magical wish-granting dragon called Long (John Cho). Din asks Long to turn him into a part of high society so he can reconcile with his childhood friend Lina.

Things take a turn for the worse as Din is confronted by forces determined to get their hands on the teapot — and Long’s wish-granting powers — at any cost.

Chris Appelhans, who previously worked on the art departments for Coraline and Rise of the Guardians, wrote and directed Wish Dragon.

Along with Aron Warner and Chris Bramble, actor/martial artist Jackie Chan serves as a director on Wish Dragon and provides the Mandarin version’s voice of Long. Warner is best known for producing the Shrek film series and its spin-offs.

Netflix had earlier stated its plan to overtake Disney+ as the leading producer of family-themed animation content. The Mitchells vs. The Machines, a Sony Pictures Animation film, premiered in April, and it will be joined by other animated films such as America: The Motion Picture and Troll hunters: Rise of the Titans.

Wish Dragon was written and directed by Chris Appelhans and features Jimmy Wong, John Cho, Constance Wu, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Will Yun Lee, Jimmy O. Yang, Aaron Yoo, Bobby Lee, and Ronnie Chieng as voice actors. On June 11th, it will be available on Netflix.

Wong plays Din, a poor college student on the lookout for his long-lost friend Lina, in the latest Wish Dragon trailer. Din receives three wishes from Long, and the two embark on a journey through Shanghai in search of their childhood friends.

Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Will Yun Lee, Jimmy O. Yang, Aaron Yoo, Bobby Lee, and Ronnie Chieng are among the all-Asian voice cast. Jackie Chan, Aron Warner, and Chris Bramble co-produced the film, and he also voices Long in the Mandarin-dubbed version.

After Wonder Park (2019) and Abominable Snowman (2019), this is the third animated film to have its MPAA certificate confirmed before the first trailer (2019).The first feature film from Sony Animation in China.

After The Mitchells vs. the Machines and before Vivo, the film will be released on Netflix, making it Sony Pictures Animation’s second theatrically-produced film to not have a domestic theatrical release.

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, it is also the fifth animated film to be released solely on digital rather than in theatres; the previous four were Warner Animation Group’s Scoob!, Disney/Soul, Pixar’s and Paramount Animation/Nickelodeon Movies’ The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run (which had a theatrical release in Canada but was still available on Netflix internationally).
