After the success of “Rush Hour” (1998), the US wanted to make the name Jackie Chan better known among the younger generation. In 2000 the successful animation series “Jackie Chan Adventures” started, which celebrated worldwide success in a total of five seasons. This was followed by a video game and Jackie’s willingness to add a second animation series.
Jackie Chan’s breakthrough in Hollywood is often associated with “Rush Hour” (1998). In the end, it is the decisive film, but this success was paved over the years. The third attempt to conquer Hollywood wanted to get it right and advertise the Jackie Chan brand extensively.
