Less than two weeks ahead of the highly anticipated premiere of the Donald Glover & Beyonce-led live action remake of Disney classic ‘The Lion King,’ the trailer for the newest adaptation of ‘Mulan’ comes roaring onto the Net.
The latest Disney princess to see her story spun to live form, ‘Mulan’ – set to hit theaters March 27, 2020 – will revamp and retell the story of a young Chinese woman who disguises herself as a man in order to join the military to defend her country and family’s honor. Chinese actress Liu Yifei stars as the film’s champion and leads a reportedly diverse cast of actors.
See the dynamite trailer inside:
Donnie Yen as Commander Tung, Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan, Yoson An as Cheng Honghui, Gong Li as Xianniang, and Jet Li as the Emperor, the new ‘Mulan’ promises to be a fitting follow-up to its original.
Niki Caro was tapped to direct and the script was written by Elizabeth Martin, Lauren Hynek, Rick Jaffa, and Amanda Silver.
Roll on March 2020!
