Disney is on a rip bringing some classics to life as they’ve embarked on producing various live action films of our favorite classics.
The studio’s live action Lion King is ready to hit theaters in just a few days after the success of the live action version of Aladdin but they have even more films ready for viewers.
The next story to be given the live action treatment is Mulan and from looking at the first trailer, Disney will not disappoint.
When the Emperor of China (Jet Li) decrees that one male from each family must battle in the Imperial Army, Mulan (played by Yifei Liu) feigns being a male to save her ailing father from the task. As Hua Jun, Mulan can bring honor to her family doing something much braver than what they expected from her—to marry an auspicious man recommended to her by a matchmaker.
Mulan was destined for greatness beyond anything her loved ones could’ve ever imagined. She’ll use the grace, discipline, and composure taught to her by her grandmother (played by Cheng Pei-pei), guide her in the field of battle when facing the Northern invaders.
“It is my duty to fight,” Mulan says as she wields her sword like a pro while staring down her enemies.
The film is directed by Niki Caro and also stars Rosalind Chao as Mulan’s mother; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; and Gong Li as Xianniang.
Mulan arrives in theaters March 27, 2020.
