They had me with the CCR song.
The popular, epic martial art film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is getting a sequel 15 years later. The awesome Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh (Tomorrow Never Dies) returns as the sword-wielding warrior Yu Shu Lien in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny.
Sword of Destiny will be a direct-to-home release via Netflix with a limited IMAX theatrical release. Jason Scott Lee (The Jungle Book, Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, Back to the Future II) co-stars along with Donnie Yen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Shanghai Knights) as Silent Wolf. Action choreographer Yuen Woo-ping returns to direct the sequel.

The Renaissance of movie and TV tie-in action figures arrived in 2013 with Funko’s classic Kenner-style ReAction figure line. Other companies focus on single licensed figures and getting the likenesses spot-on, but Funko’s diversification of lines meant everyone could find something that fit their personal niche at an affordable price point. A true throwback series, one of the overlooked features of the line is the incredible variety of no-names-taken, classic kick-ass heroines represented.
In fact you can find here the top of the world’s best, in-your-face, take-no-prisoners, genre heroines. Buy them for yourself, for your friends, or get your favorite as a totem to inspire you each day from your desktop. And where the early sculpts in Funko’s line admittedly looked nothing like the actresses that made the roles famous, the new lines have only improved. And nobody has better packaging designs than the ReAction line.
Who would you add to the Funko roster of heroines? Compare your list to our more than 85 suggestions for future kick-ass women action figures below.
