The official teaser trailer for the upcoming Disney’s live-action Mulan film has been released and even though it might not have any songs or Mushu, I’m still here for it!
The live-action Mulan from the House of Mouse has a lot of opinions surrounding it. Fans of the 1998 animated version don’t want it to be changed to such a degree that it won’t have any songs, Mushu, or even Li Shang.
I get where such fans are coming from. However, they need to understand the animated version wasn’t received well in China. So, why would Disney risk potentially alienating a huge box office market (again)?
Mulan is based on a Chinese legend and that’s why I appreciate Disney making a version which seems it will be more respectful of Chinese culture and sentiments.
There are rumors about the studio considering adding certain songs. Also, Mushu might appear as a phoenix. Again, these are only rumors at this point. So, don’t get your hopes up.
Here’s the teaser trailer!
From the clothing to the overall look, I like everything about it! Disney seems to be creating a war epic with some Oscar-nomination potential. Fingers crossed it does well at the box office.
Here’s my reaction to the Mulan teaser trailer!
Mulan has been directed by Niki Caro with the screenplay by Elizabeth Martin, Lauren Hynek, Rick Jaffa, and Amanda Silver. The film stars Yifei Liu with Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Gong Li, and Jet Li.
The film is currently scheduled to be released on March 27, 2020.
While you wait, you should consider watching the 2009 live-action version of the story made by Chinese talent. It was well-received and I enjoyed watching it, too. Fun fact, Yifei Liu was reportedly considered for the lead role in that version as well.
Will Disney bring back the legendary Szechuan Sauce for promotional purposes?
