This is a movie i used to watch when I was a kid. The movie is around 90 minutes, is live-action, and was shown on the Disney Channel. Important context is that I watched this on the Indonesian version of the Disney Channel. (It wasn't an Indonesian production)
I'm not sure if the movie was produced by Disney, just that I saw it on the Disney channel. I'm pretty sure it featured an East asian boy as the main character.
I honestly don't really remember much from the movie, as I last saw it a very long time ago.
I'm not sure if it was freshly produced around 2008-2010, or if it was a re-run from an old production. But I do feel like it wasn't an old movie (at least 2000+).
If I'm not wrong, he also had friends that weren't human. I'm not sure if his friends were animated or realistic.
