Disney has debuted the first Mulan trailer and teaser poster.
The march of Disney’s live-action remakes shows no signs of slowing down. Just last week we learned who will be playing Ariel in The Little Mermaid. Before that film hits theaters, however, we’re going to be seeing a live-action take on Mulan.
From what we’ve been hearing, there will be some significant changes to the story, with one of the most significant being the exclusion of Mushu (Eddie Murphy). As the trailer seems to show a more serious take on the story, we can understand not including a wise-cracking dragon.
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. “Mulan” features a celebrated international cast that includes: 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. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.”
Mulan hits theaters on March 27, 2020.
