First Photo From Disney's Live-Action Adaptation of MULAN!
Disney has released the first official photo from director Niko Caro's (Whale Rider, McFarland USA) live-action adaptation of Mulan. It features actress Liu Yifei in the title role and she looks fantastic! The film has officially started shooting and, I don't know about you, but I'm actually pretty excited about seeing how this film turns out. This could be an epic movie!
Mulan is the epic adventure of 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.
The film will shoot on locations in New Zealand and China and the cast includes Donnie Yen (Star Wars: Rogue One); Jason Scott Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny); Yoson An (The Meg); Utkarsh Ambudkar (Pitch Perfect); Ron Yuan (Marco Polo); Tzi Ma (Arrival); Rosalind Chao (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine); Cheng Pei-Pei (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon); Nelson Lee; Chum Ehelepola; with Gong Li (Memoirs of a Geisha, Raise the Red Lantern) and Jet Li (Lethal Weapon 4).
The script for the film was written by Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver (Jurassic World, In the Heart of the Sea), Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem "The Ballad of Mulan."
Mulan will open in U.S. theaters on March 27, 2020. What do you think of Mulan's live-action look?
