Quiet. Composed. Graceful. Disciplined. These are the qualities we see in a good wife. These are the qualities we see in Mulan.
Our first look at Disney’s live-action Mulan is here — and it is breathtaking. Featuring a celebrated international cast, stunning locations, and epic action sequences, Mulan is set to hit theaters on March 27, 2020.
About Disney’s Live-Action Mulan
When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father. Mulan features a celebrated international cast that includes: Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.”

No doubt this live-action Mulan will be an epic retelling of another one of our beloved Disney Classics. I only hope we might get a song or two — or even just a re-recording of some of the original songs from the 1998 cartoon as a bonus feature. I LOVED Reflection and I’ll Make a Man Out of You!
