Fantastic First Trailer Released for Disney's Live-Action MULAN
Disney has released the first teaser trailer for their live-action adaptation of their wonderful 1998 animated film Mulan. Fans have been curious about how this movie would turn out, and now we know a little more of what we can expect from the film!
The film looks like it will be a visually stunning action-adventure movie that follows “a fearless young woman who masquerades as a man in order to fight Northern Invaders attacking China. The eldest daughter of an honored warrior, Hua Mulan is spirited, determined and quick on her feet. When the Emperor issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army, she steps in to take the place of her ailing father as Hua Jun, becoming one of China’s greatest warriors ever.”
This movie won’t include any of the music from the original animated film, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be good! This is going to tell the same epic story that the fans love. Not every Disney remake has to be a complete carbon copy of the original film. But that might just end up disappointing some fans. Hey, if you are a fan of the original animated movie, you could always just watch that again!
Liu Yifei takes on the role of Hua Mulan, and the rest of the cast includes Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An,Utkarsh Ambudkar, Ron Yuan, Tzi Ma, Rosalind Chao, Cheng Pei-Pei, Nelson Lee, Chum Ehelepola, with Gong Li and Jet Li.
The movie is being directed by Niki Caro (The Zookeeper’s Wife, North Country), and it will be released on March 27th, 2020.
