Disney released the first teaser of upcoming real-life revamp Mulan over the weekend on Sunday which is based off the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, reported a foreign media outlet. It is pertinent to note that this will be the reboot of the first 1998 American animated action experience. The teaser of the aforementioned film was shown during halftime of the FIFA Women's World Cup, denoting their sublime success. In the trailer, Mulan can be seen preparing to take on any new suitors on the frontline battle field through her sword-battling abilities. It was delivered as a surprise for all the Mulan fans out there!
"Mulan is the epic experience of a courageous young lady who takes on the appearance of a man so as to battle Northern Invaders assaulting China," the film studio said about the motion picture. Mulan stars Li as ruler of China, Gong Li as an amazing witch with lots of powers and Donnie Yen as Mulan's coach who is known as Commander Tung. Yoson An will likewise show up as Mulan's partner and inevitable love interest, Chen Honghui. The movie is directed by Niki Caro, the new film is set to hit theaters on March 27, 2020.
Disney isn't backing off on its revamps. Considering Dumbo and Aladdin, the second half of this current year will bring an entire slew of live action variants of favorite movies including The Lion King and Lady and the Tramp. It is adapted from the animated version of a young Chinese woman who poses as a man in order to take her father's place in the army–and is, needless to say, a stone-cold badass. Casting an ethnically Chinese on-screen actor was a high need for the studio. Liu Yifei is a standout amongst the most prominent actresses in China, having showed up in a few hit TV dramatizations there, and has assumed English-talking jobs including 2008's The Forbidden Kingdom inverse Jackie Chan, and 2004's Outcast with Nicolas Cage.
