In Forbidden Kingdom, American teenager Jason (Michael Angarano) finds himself transported back to ancient China. There, he meets the drunken Kung Fu master, Lu Yan (Jackie Chan); an enigmatic and skillful Silent Monk (Jet Li); and a vengeance-bent Kung Fu beauty named Golden Sparrow (Crystal Liu Yi Fei). In a quest to return the Monkey King's stolen staff, Jason learns about honor, loyalty, friendship, and the true meaning of Kung Fu. He must also battle the evil Jade Warlord (Collin Chou) in a Kung Fu fight to the death.
We recently met up with Jackie Chan, Michael Angarano, and Collin Chou to chat with them about this Kung Fu extravaganza that plays like a Black Belt Theater version of The Wizard of Oz. To watch our exclusive video interviews, click on the video clips below:
