- Mulan is a live-action remake of the Disney animation.
- It is being released March 27, 2020.
- There is no Mushu.
Disney has given us the first look at its latest live-action remake. Mulan is coming to theaters on March 27, 2020, and from the looks of the trailer, it is going to be a more realistic retelling than the original animation. Unfortunately for some, that does mean there will be no music and no Mushu the lizard (Sorry, he's a Dragon), so we are unlikely to see Eddie Murphy in the movie.
The cast, however, looks great and features Yifei Liu as Mulan, as well as the legends that are Jet Li, and Donnie Yen. The trailer is clearly a more narrative telling with combat seemingly taken from stunning movies like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The trailer shows us several different sections of the movie including Mulan finding out about her impending marriage, her training at the recruitment camp, as well as her fighting the horde.
When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.
Disney has been doubling down on remaking its classic movies, some with more success than others. Mulan is already seeing a lot of positive reactions on social media, even if a lot of people are sad that Mushu isn't going to be around.
The film is directed by Niki Caro and features the acting talent of Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor. It will be available in theaters on March 27, 2020.
