Another Disney remake trailer has been released and admittedly, this is one of the most stunning yet. Mulan‘s live-action remake is set to be released in 2020 and has been kept very quiet since production was announced.
But, it is finally here.
The film stars Yifei Liu as Mulan alongside Rogue One‘s Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Gong Li, the legendary Jet Li, and more.
Hua Mulan was a Chinese warrior woman who apparently lived during the Northern and Southern dynasties, between 420 and 589 CE. Upon her unwell father’s call to join the army, she poses as a male soldier and proves to the country that being a woman is pretty damn awesome. Her story was told through the “Ballad of Mulan.” And although it’s a phenomenal tale of girl power, no one is sure whether she really existed or not.
Aside from stunning visuals and clearly capturing the badassery that IS Mulan, I have to admit, I’ll be pretty disappointed if “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You,” has been skipped over in this version. Because it’s probably one of the highlights of the original. There’s been no confirmation about the music but it seems like we’ll just be getting purely instrumental versions. Please, Disney, give us the bops!
There also seems to be a couple of missing characters from the trailer, mainly Mushu, Mulan’s fiery sidekick – although we suspect Disney can’t give too much away so soon.
Honestly SO pumped for this!
