Bruce Lee Returns In Action Anime ‘House Of Lee’

‘Enter The Dragon’ star Bruce Lee may have tragically passed away in 1973 at the age of 33, but his wife Linda and daughter Shannon Lee are keeping his legacy alive. The iconic Martial Arts star is returning thanks to a partnership between Bruce Lee Entertainment and Emily Yang’s content platform Shibuya to create the action anime ‘House of Lee.’

Deadline reports, “House of Lee, the first ever Bruce Lee anime project, will premiere in 2024. In celebration of Enter the Dragon‘s 50th anniversary, special 4K UHD screenings of the movie will be held in over 650 theaters on Sunday, August 13 and Wednesday, August 16. They will include the House of Lee trailer…”

“House of Lee is an action/fantasy series that sees Bruce Lee fighting to assemble his Dragon Warriors before the world plunges too far into darkness and shadow,” they add.

Shannon Lee told Deadline that Bruce Lee Entertainment had been wanting to do an animated story based on her father and was inspired to do an anime after ‘White Rabbit’ which was co-produced by Yang.

She explained, “Anime is an amazing medium for telling a truly creative story where Bruce Lee can be Bruce Lee.” Lee continued, “I’m so excited for the possibilities for action, fantasy, history, culture, and creativity within this medium.”

“I love Emily and Shibuya’s perspective,” Lee continued. “They are such creative, hard working, skilled artists with an amazing brand, I just knew that they would be perfect collaborators. The organic way it all came together spoke volumes of our potential collaboration, and it’s been great!”

Bruce Lee starred in the television series ‘The Green Hornet’ as the main protagonist’s crime-fighting partner Kato. He would go on to star in several Hong Kong films including ‘Fist of Fury’ and ‘The Way of the Dragon.’ The 1973 film ‘Enter The Dragon’ would be released shortly after Lee’s death and solidify his legacy as an action star.
