Director Niki Caro Shares First Set Photo From Disney's MULAN
We recently got our first look at Liu Yifei as Mulan and it was awesome. Now, we’re getting another look at the live-action adaptation from director Niki Caro herself. The photo is a set photo and it is very reminiscent of when Mulan sings “Reflection” after the disastrous meeting with the matchmaker in the animated film. Of course, a lot of the picture is green screen, but I think it’s safe to say that it should look a lot better after they do some editing. Although it looks like a perfect moment for Mulan to be singing, we already know that’s not going to happen.
In addition to Yifei, the cast includes Utkarsh Ambudkar, Yoson An, Rosalind Chao, Chum Ehelepola, Jason Scott Lee, Nelson Lee, Gong Li, Jet Li, Tzi Ma, Cheng Pei-Pei, Donnie Yen, and Ron Yuan. Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Elizabeth Martin, and Lauren Hynek wrote the script based on the narrative poem, “The Ballad of Mulan.”
Mulan will launch on March 27, 2020.
