First look at Sandra Oh and Awkwafina's new movie 20th Century Studios

Fans can get a glimpse of Sandra Oh and Awkwafina's new Disney+ comedy.

The Killing Eve and Crazy Rich Asians stars play sisters Jenny and Anne in Quiz Lady.

The film follows gameshow-obsessed Anne (Awkwafina) and her train wreck of a sister, Jenny (Oh) as they work together to try to cover their mother's gambling debts.

After Anne's dog is kidnapped, the pair set out on a cross-country trek to try to get their hands on some cash the only way they know how - by helping Anne to become a gameshow champion.

The movie was originally in Netflix's pipeline when the news of the pairing up was first announced in 2020 but was eventually acquired by 20th Century Studios, which Disney owns.

Awkwafina recently voiced Scuttle in Disney's live-action The Little Mermaid and is co-creator, writer and executive producer for TV show Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens.

Oh, who had a long-running role in Grey's Anatomy, has multiple projects in the works, including returning to voice Debbie Grayson in the animated adult superhero series Invincible and a role alongside Julianne Moore in Stone Mattress.

Could she even reprise her Princess Diaries role of Geraldine Gupta?

Quiz Lady lands on Disney + on November 3.
