As a new Little Mermaid rolls out its cast list and The Lion Kings July 18 release date approaches, Disney is next turning its gaze toward Mulan. A first full trailer for the live-action remake of the 1998 animated film has arrived, starring Chinese-American actress Liu Yifei in the title role.
Disney dropped its latest trailer and poster appropriately during halftime of the FIFA Womens World Cup, and well in advance of the films March 27, 2020 release. The sneak peek footage downplays many musical or fantastical elements of the original animated adaptation—miss you, Mushu—but does nod toward the classic “Honor to Us All” song with a few notes playing over Mulans conversation with her parents. Disney released a first poster as well.
The film features Donnie Yen as Mulans mentor, Commander Tung, along with Jason Scott Lee as Hun leader Böri Khan, Yoson An as ally/potential love interest Cheng Honghui, with Gong Li as the witch Xianniang and Jet Li as the emperor of China. Whale Rider director Niki Caro adapts a screenplay written by Elizabeth Martin, Lauren Hynek, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.Read More – Source
