Wendy Wu Homecoming Warrior

Wendy Wu is an average, popular, American teenager whose life is turned upside down by a visit from a young Buddhist monk Shen (Shin Koyamada). Shen claims Wendy is the reincarnation of an all-powerful almighty female warrior, and the only one who can prevent an ancient evil spirit from destroying the world. Shen begs Wendy to wear an incredibly strong and powerful amulet that will protect her from evil until he can fully train her in martial arts. As if juggling homework, a hottie boyfriend, and fierce competition for homecoming queen isn’t enough, now she’s got to seriously train her mind, body, and spirit in all things Kung Fu. With Shen’s help, her teachers are possessed by the souls of the Five Animals of Chinese martial arts to help teach Wendy. Shen begins to sacrifice himself, as it is his destiny, but Wendy saves him by changing his destiny. Wendy and Shen both kick Yan Lo together, and Yan Lo is destroyed forever. The monks tell Shen this is his last life, and they ascend.
