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

House of Lee is also expected to be the first of many Bruce Lee focused anime projects from Bruce Lee Entertainment as Shannon Lee has previously stated that the studio has had anime projects in the works for several years.
