Now that Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is off the theatres and streaming on Disney+, Asian Americans and others have several thoughts on the new movie. 

8th grade student, Bruno Larrain, stated, “I believe Shang Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings does show Asian representation because not only does the cast mostly have Asian actors, they also made sure that the entire story revolves around Asian culture.”

Jabreal Ishtiwi, a Glasgow student said, “I mean there are a lot of Asian people in the movie and it does not matter where you come from. It shows that everyone can be a superhero and everyone should be treated with fairness.”

Ruth Mulat, a Glasgow student said, “I think it does show Asian  representation in society because in most TV shows there aren’t many Asian hero’s or character’s. This movie had a  very big cast of Asians, it’s a big movement towards adding more Asians in the movie industry.”

8th grade Filipino American student Carlin Adjula commented, “I think Shang-Chi accurately showed Asian representation. As an Asian American myself, I’m glad we’re finally starting to see Asian representation in modern media, and especially in a big industry such as Marvel. It’s very refreshing to see.”

Well, here it is Glasgow. The review and thoughts of students of both non-Asian descent and  Asian descent on the Asian representation in Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. There are many Asian Americans at Glasgow and it is refreshing to see that they are finally starting to be represented in the media.
