Disney Released The First Photo From Live-Action 'Mulan' & She Looks Ready to Get Down to Business

Disney announced that it began production on the live-action Mulan, and shared a first look of the titular heroine.

Disney tweeted a photo of Liu Yifei, the star of the title role.

The movie is based on the 1998 animated film, and is the latest of the ‘90s Disney movies to be adapted into a live-action film.

According to Hello Giggles, the live-action Mulan will be a looser adaptation. The film won’t have some of the original songs featured in the animated film, and won’t feature Mulan’s army captain and love interest Li Shang.

Despite the fact there will be some changes, the movie will mostly be the iconic story we grew up with.

According to Disney, the film’s official plot follows “the epic adventure of a fearless young woman who masquerades as a man in order to fight Northern Invaders attacking China. The eldest daughter of an honored warrior, Hua Mulan is spirited, determined and quick on her feet. When the Emperor issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army, she steps in to take the place of her ailing father as Hua Jun, becoming one of China’s greatest warriors ever.”

The film also stars Star Wars: Rogue One star Donnie Yen as Mulan’s mentor, Commander Tung; Yoson An as Mulan’s fellow soldier and later love interest, Chen Honghui; and Jet Li as the Emperor of China, ABC News reports.

Mulan is set to come out in theaters on March 27, 2020, and we know Mulan will bring honor to us all.
