Disney's Live Action MULAN Reportedly Replaced Mushu and Tweaked Some of the Original Songs
A new report from thedisinsider claims that despite previous reports, the new Disney live-action remake of Mulan will no longer feature the songs from the original film and will remove the character of Mushu, replacing him with a Phoenix.
Not only did the report say they will no longer use the original songs, but it is sounding like there won’t be much music in the traditional Disney sense at all, saying, “the songs will not be sung by the cast as the music is just instrumentals.”
That is definitely a different route for a Disney movie, but not necessarily a bad one. If they are going more of the historical route and trying to be closer to reality, this makes a lot of sense. I am hopeful that this film will be great, so I am trusting the changes.
Do you think this is a welcome change for the film? Mulan is set to hit theaters March 27, 2020.
