Only a few photos exist of Sonny Chiba and Jackie Chan together. What has connected the Japanese “Street Fighter” actor and the Hong Kong “happy go lucky” star for decades, however, is a persistent rumour of a joint film: “Ninja Wars” (1982).
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.
