About Disney's Chang Can Dunk:

Bloom Li has landed the lead role in the upcoming Disney Studio’ high school basketball feature film Chang Can Dunk. Jingyi Shao will direct and write the production.

In Chang Can Dunk, a 16-year old, constantly marginalized, not-popular high school kid and wannabe basketball player becomes obsessed with the idea of learning to dunk, all in an effort to best the school’s basketball star, Matt — and hopefully win the attention of the very pretty Kristy.

Lena Waithe and Rishi Rajani are producing through their Hillman Grad Productions. Brad Weston and Negin Salmasi are also producing the movie, which is planned for Disney+.
