Disney Cast Member and Guest Share an Intimate Exchange

Excuse us while we fill your screen with a dose of goodness! Shang Chi, the Marvel Studios superhero in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021), recently surprised one Disney Park fan as she was able to communicate with him through sign language.

@sllippery.when.wet took to social media to share a video of an intimate exchange between a Disney Guest named Lili Jae and Shang Chi at Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park. The video captures them sweetly communicating in American Sign Language (ASL).

The video notes, “Everyone! Stop what you’re doing, and watch the magic that is Shang Chi!” Check it out below:

As you can see and read in the TikTok video, the conversation between the Disney Guest and the Shang Chi character is primarily about learning new languages, as Shang Chi is working to better his ASL skills. He may not be perfect at it, but the fact that he was able to communicate with the woman is so refreshing to see!

Some of the comments to the theme park video include, “Ummmm could this be any more wholesome?”; “I love that he tried and learned along the way.”; and “That’s OK I didn’t need my heart today.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Disney Cast Member entertaining Guests with their sign language skills. We’ve also seen a special moment with Princess Anna from Frozen (2013) using ASL with a Guest, as well as Joy from Inside Out (2015) sign with a young boy.
