The official trailer for Disney’s live-action Mulan has released online. Following the recent box office success of its Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King retellings, the Mouse House is giving yet another one of its beloved ’90s animated films a makeover. Released in 1998, Disney’s original Mulan wasn’t as lucrative as the studio’s other Animation Renaissance features, but it was an Oscar-nominated hit in its own right. For the 2020 version, however, director Niki Caro is making some noticeable changes to its predecessor.
Disney released a teaser trailer for Mulan on Sunday showing Mulan being told she must be a good wife who is quiet, composed, graceful, disciplined. She instead becomes a fearless soldier, saying, It is my duty to fight. More details about the film will roll out as the release date approaches. But here’s everything we know so far.
Mulan is slated for a March 27, 2020, release in the US and UK. The film was initially set for a November 2018 release but was pushed back in March of that year after Disney reportedly took longer than expected to find an actress for the starring role.
