Mr Bean is back! But, there is a catch. People can only see him in China.

In a surprising cameo in the Chinese film Top Funny Comedian: The Movie, actor Rowan Atkinson reprised his role as Mr Bean, reports The Independent.

Known as Mr Foolish Bean in China, his latest vacation takes him to the country, where he is using his iPhone to click ornate sculptures.

Atkinson’s co-star in the movie, said in an interview with The Beijinger, that they used body language to talk to each other.

He said, “(We communicated) just with facial expressions and gestures. We seemed to understand each other. It was a really interesting experience, which proves that comedy can cross boundaries.”

Top Funny Comedian: The Movie is China’s answer to hit Hollywood comedy The Hangover.

The story focuses on a group of four men and a woman, venturing to Macau where one of them gets lost, requiring the other four to save them.
