Production Begins on Disney's Live-Action Adaptation of MULAN

Production on Disney’s “Mulan”, a live-action adaptation of the studio’s 1998 animated feature, has finally begun. The film will shoot on locations in New Zealand and China and is still ways off from its release date which is scheduled on March 27, 2020 in Philippine theaters - almost two years still. Liu Yifei was cast as Hua Mulan following a year-long global casting search. Joining her in the film are: Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Ron Yuan, Tzi Ma, Rosalind Chao, Cheng Pei-Pei, Nelson Lee, Chum Ehelepola, Gong Li and Jet Li.

“Mulan” is 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. “Mulan” is being directed by Niki Caro.
