Disney has just released the official trailer for Mulan, and it looks like Disney is finally putting a fresh spin on its live-action remakes.
No Mushu. No songs. Just a badass epic. There are hints of the 1990s animated classic throughout the trailer, but this looks like a whole new adaptation of the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan”.
I will definitely be checking this out mostly to see just how much Disney took this film in a new direction. A lot of the complaints for past Disney remakes were that the films were basically just a live-action shot-for-shot remake with barely anything new added. Mulan looks to be breaking the mold, and I hope it will be the start of something new for Disney’s live-action remakes.
Chinese actress Liu Yifei plays the legendary warrior while Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Ron Yuan, Tzi Ma, Rosalind Chao, Cheng Pei-Pei, Nelson Lee, Chum Ehelepola, Gong Li, and Jet Li also star.
Mulan hits theaters March 27, 2020.
What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
