Coming-of-Age Sports Comedy Will Debut Exclusively on Disney+ on Friday, March 10
BURBANK, Calif. (March 6, 2023) – Stills and b-roll from tonight’s Launch & Screening Event for Disney’s “Chang Can Dunk” are available now. In attendance from the film, which debuts March 10 exclusively on Disney+, were cast members Bloom Li, Dexter Darden, Ben Wang, Zoe Renee, Chase Liefield, Mardy Ma and Eric Anthony Lopez, along with Writer-Director Jingyi Shao, Producers Rishi Rajani, Lena Waithe and Brad Weston and Costume Designer Joshua Marsh. Prior to the screening, guests were immersed into the basketball world of “Chang Can Dunk” through engaging dunk photo opportunities and hooping entertainment.
“Chang Can Dunk” follows Chang, a 16-year-old, Asian American high school student in the marching band, who bets the school basketball star that he can dunk by Homecoming. The bet leads the 5 ’8" Chang on a quest to find the hops he needs to dunk in order to impress his crush, Kristy, and finally gain the attention and respect of his high school peers. But before he can rise up and truly throw one down, he’ll have to reexamine everything he knows about himself, his friendships and his family.
