Jackie Chan’s latest film “Ride On”, which premieres in China on 7 April 2023, has generated a lot of hype among fans and distributors worldwide with its latest trailer. Where recently at the European Film Market in Berlin distributors were rubbing their hands with glee for the film, Jackie’s fans are asking themselves: How do I actually get an autograph from my idol?
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.
Every fan knows “Jackie Chan Adventures”, Jackie Chan’s first cartoon television series from the USA. From 2000 to 2005 it ran on US television and drew its circles around the world, including successfully to Germany. Only a few years later, Jackie Chan added his own Chinese anime series that hardly anyone in the West knows to this day.
