Remember Jackie Chan Adventures? An American animated television series that narrated the adventures of the animated version of the action star - a show that had a successful run for five years.
Now, Jackie has announced a similar, new 3D animated series titled J-Team: All New Jackie Chan Adventures.
Reports suggest that the series will be telecasted in China and will have 104 episodes. It will revolve around the child version of Jackie and his team who fight against all the evil odds. Malay Mail reported that the show will be aired on three children's satellite TV channels and 200 terrestrial channels across China.
Jackie will also appear in every episode to share useful lessons with children. Child actress Kyana "Poppy" Downs, from the successful Chinese reality show, Dad, Where Are We Going? will play the lead role in the series.
"It's meant to help young children to do things they don't always like to do — like, don't look at your phone for too long, remember to brush your teeth, respect your elders, pick up the trash," the 63-year-old was quoted while speaking about the series at the Beijing International Film Festival.
Jackie is also producing the series along with Zhejiang Talent Television & Film, Khorgas JJ Culture Media Co., and VJ Animation Studio. They also have plans to bankroll a similar children's film in 2019, launch a series of merchandising products and also to build a theme park. The theme is also looking for overseas distributors. Jackie Chan Adventures was aired in more than 60 countries.
"[This show] is not about making money — I have a lot of money already. Today, what I'm really doing with this cartoon is, I can show to the world, it used to be Jackie's adventures from America, but these days, everything is made in China," Jackie added.
"I hope to use my influence to bring Chinese culture to the world," he concluded.
