Mulan is ready to get down to business.
Disney dropped the first teaser for the highly-anticipated live-action remake during the finals of the FIFA Women’s World Cup on Sunday. Shout out to all the badasss women around the world!
While we have yet to see if the film will include Mushu, Cri-Kee, and other fan favorites from the animated film, we do get to see Liu Yifei step into the beloved role.
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.
The film also stars 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 and hits theaters March 27, 2020.
