the lxd is live!

Aw yeah... At long last! The LXD, director Jon M. Chu's highly-anticipated epic dance webseries saga thing, is now live. Feels like we've been waiting for this thing forever... and it's fantastic! There are quite a few Asian American characters featured in the series, including Justin Starr and Jimmy Angel. Here's some more info:
The next evolution of dance begins in the groundbreaking, provocative first installment of The LXD: The Uprising Begins. From visionary writer/director Jon M. Chu (STEP UP 3D), The Uprising Begins chronicles the journey of seemingly ordinary people who discover they have extraordinary powers and must choose their place in an epic war between good and evil.

There's high school outcast Trevor Drift (Bboy Luigi) uncovering his family's dangerous secret, fallen soldier Sp3cimen (Madd Chadd) running from his dark past, and unassuming hero Elliot Hoo (Glee's Harry Shum Jr.) haunted by newly discovered supernatural gifts. All of whom are called to fulfill their destiny and join The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers. Each of their stories showcases the unbelievable flips, spins and twists that have already made The LXD a pop cultural phenomenon and one of the most highly anticipated films ever released.

Join the adventure, uncover the mystery. The next evolution of dance starts now.
