The story of Mulan is finally revealed in the full trailer of the upcoming live-action adaptation of the Disney animated film, which looks more to follow the legend of the story and not so much its animated counterpart.
When the Emperor decrees that one male member of each family must fight in a war against the Northern invaders in China, Hua Mulan decides to disguise herself as Hua Jun to replace her ailing father. She faces off against the invaders led by Bori Khan and his witch sidekick Xianniang.
Crystal Liu Yifei plays the titular Mulan alongside Donnie Yen as Commander Tung, Yoson An as Cheng Honghui, a fellow soldier who will be Mulan’s love interest; Jason Scott Lee as Bori Khan, Gong Li as Xianniang, and Jet Li as the Emperor.
Niki Caro directed the film with a March 27, 2020 release date set by Disney.
