When we saw yesterday’s new poster for Disney’s live-action remake of Mulan, we said that a new trailer would probably be coming soon. Well, here it is. The new trailer has quickly jumped to the #1 trending spot on Youtube, in no small part to the fact that it looks like a much better film than many of the recent Disney live-action movie adaptations. The scope of the film is epic and the tone feels much more mature and dramatic than we’ve seen in pretty much any of the other remakes.
Mulan is set to hit theaters on March 27, 2020, and it stars Liu Yifei, Donnie Yen, Jet Li, Jason Scott Lee, Gong Li, Yoson An, Tzi Ma, and Rosalind Chao.
When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father. “Mulan” features a celebrated international cast that includes: Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.”
