Disney Is Bringing “Mulan” To Life10 months ago by Amber Le in Movie News
I guess the industry is reviving Asian female characters because Disney is reviving Mulan and she is coming to life. The live action remake welcomes Jet Li and Gong Li to the cast alongside star, Liu Yifei who will be taking on the role as the honorable Chinese princess.
Cassting for the movie started late 2017 and director, Niki Caro is beginning to rowdy up his line up for the action packed Disney movie. Donnie Yen was recently confirmed to be the Commander in the Chinese army. Jet Li will be taking on the key role of the Emperor with his phenomenal martial arts background. Gong Li is set to play the villain, who is a powerful witch and apparently Mulan has a sister, Xana Tang will adapt the new role.
This isn’t just an attempt from Disney to produce just another children’s live-action remake but they are aiming to be international and with a cast of seasoned kick ass veterans, that goal is not too far fetched.
