Mulan To Be Back On Screen In 2020

Mulan To Be Back On Screen In 2020: Disney’s live-action remake of the legend of a Chinese woman warrior, “Mulan”, has started production, the company announced this week.

Hua Mulan, according to legend, lived in a tumultuous era of Chinese history more than 1,400 years ago.

She disguised herself as a man so that she could serve in the army in place of her aged father. Liu Yifei, 30, got the title role following a year-long global casting, with Gong Li as a powerful, dangerous witch, and Jet Li as the emperor of China.

Disney also unveiled the first image from the film, showing Liu Yifei armed with a sword.

Disney released the animated version of Mulan in 1998 to favorable reviews and it became one of the highest-grossing films worldwide that year.

The new version will hit U.S. theaters in March 2020.

Ming-Na Wen, who voiced Mulan in the original Disney animated classic film, is excited about the upcoming live-action remake starring Liu Yifei. Speaking to EW, she said it is “great to keep that legacy alive.”

20 years ago, Ming-Na Wen helped bring the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan to life on the big screen through Disney’s animated film Mulan. Ming-Na Wen voiced the titular heroine who impersonates a man in order to take her father’s place in the Imperial Army as part of a general conscription to counter a Hun invasion. Now Disney is looking to tell the legendary story of Mulan to a new audience of movie-goers via a live-action adaptation and Ming-Na Wen couldn’t be more excited for it to hit theaters in two years.

Speaking to EW, Ming-Na Wen said: Obviously, Mulan has had a major cultural impact over its 20 year span and now it’ll reach an entirely new generation of viewers. Disney’s live-action Mulan is scheduled to arrive in theaters on March 27, 2020.

Disney has done such an amazing job with the other live-action [remakes], and I love them all, like Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, and Maleficent. So I’m definitely excited that they chose Mulan of all the other great Disney movies to turn into live-action.
