Happy Birthday to Papa Chan

Jackie, ever the devoted son, gave a huge 90th birthday party for his Dad last night. Over 100 guests were on hand to celebrate. Happy Birthday to Papa Chan from the Jackie Chan Kids Corner! Click here to read more. Here's what the New Sunday Times from Malaysia said:

Hong Kong superstar Jackie Chan arrived in Kuala Lumpur yesterday to throw a big birthday bash last night for his father, Charles Chan, who turns 90.
Chan took 140 rooms at the Palace of the Golden Horses, including its most expensive suite. The Golden Suite costs RM12,000 a night.

The dinner party was held at the Mines Resort Golf Club.

Chan and his father arrived at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport on a special charter flight from Hong Kong, which reportedly cost HK$1 million (RM490,000), with at least 100 guests in tow.

All were wearing T-shirts emblazoned with the words ’Papa@90’.

The Chan entourage leaves for home today.


Filming of The Myth Continues

According to Chinese news reports, Jackie and the production team of The Myth are traveling extensively through China to film various parts of the movie. Unfortunately, accidents continue to plague this production - another actor has suffered an injury on the set. It seems as though working with horses isn't as easy as it looks!

More Christmas Cards for Jackie!

Just when the Kids Corner webmaster had nearly given up hope that fans would send in the kinds of wonderful Christmas cards that they have in past years, she went to check the Kids Corner mailbox and it was STUFFED full of cards for Jackie. Thanks so much! Click below to see the newest additions to the cards.

There will be more cards posted either tonight or tomorrow since another package of cards has just arrived from fans in Wisconsin!

Note from the Webmaster:

Wow! Thank you so much to all of you who have sent me a beautiful Christmas card. I was touched by all the nice things you had to say about the website - I'm so glad you enjoy it. I hope that you will continue to have fun visiting the Jackie Chan Kids Corner as it keeps growing and getting better and better. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone.

Jackie on German Television

After arriving in Nuernberg, Germany today from Beijing, Jackie appeared on a popular German interview show. He talked a little bit about Around the World in 80 Days and he mentioned again that he would like to do more acting that action in the future. He also mentioned the accident on the set of The Myth and talked about his work with the United Nations Children's Fund. Jackie was in fine physical shape (he mentioned being tired from the travel), so it looks like he's fully recovered from his injuries on The Myth set. Click the photos below to see the interview (it's in English) OR a great spot where Jackie breaks bricks while holding a raw egg in his hand!

Best Supporting Actor - Daniel WU (New Police Story) - Hong Kong / China, mainland

Best Action Choreography - LEE Chung-Chi, Jo Stunt Team (New Police Story) - Hong Kong / China, mainland

So it looks like New Police Story was THE favorite movie this year! Congratulations to JCE, to Jackie, to Willie, Solon, and Barbie, to Benny Chan, and everyone else who worked on this fine film!

New Police Story

Jackie's newest Hong Kong movie, New Police Story, is finally available for viewers outside of Asia to see - it has been released on DVD and can be purchased online from various sources.

This movie shows a side of Jackie that most have never seen before. It is an intensely emotional movie that is, at times, almost painful to watch. And that says a LOT about Jackie's superior acting ability. New Police Story is not a movie for Jackie's younger fans. It is too intense. But since this website has many adult Jackie fans who visit, the webmaster will be posting a review here within the next few days, so stay tuned.
