Ah, Mulan, the heartfelt story of a woman warrior disguising herself to take her father’s place in a war. Based on Chinese history, it was one of Disney’s most successful animated films of the late 90’s. Fans were overjoyed after the news of a live-action remake broke out and Disney revealed the cast yesterday and we have one word to describe it: wow! The role of Mulan will be played by Chinese actor Liu Yifei.
While fans were initially angered by the announcement of no songs being included in the film, they have been extremely supportive towards the casting decisions. Why wouldn’t they be? They have seen Liu star in martial arts film before, most notably with Jackie Chan and Jet Li in The Forbidden Kingdom. She goes with the role like maple syrup does with pancake. The film is expected to hit the screens by 2019 and with Disney’s impeccable choice; we honestly can’t wait for the film to be released.
