Marvel and Disney have shared a brand new featurette for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings entitled “Ready to Rise.”

The two-minute visual sees director Destin Daniel Cretton, writer Dave Callaham and stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Fala Chen and Michelle Yeoh talk about Asian representation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “For many of us who grew up in the West, whose parents immigrated, you know, we never really see ourselves on screen meaningfully. Shang-Chi will be an important piece of that conversation,” Liu, who plays the titular role, said in the featurette.

“The story of Shang-Chi was actually very personal,” Cretton shared. “I wanted to look at what a superhero could be, what it would mean to me. To be able to add not only one character — Shang-Chi — but to add a whole cornucopia of Asian faces that are representing something I’ve never really seen before.”

Watch the featurette above. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings premieres September 3.
