D23 Expo 2019: ‘Mulan’ Promises To Be A Large-Scale Live-Action Epic With A Touch Of Disney Magic
  |  @   |  

Mulan is considered to be one of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ crown jewels and given Disney’s success with their live-action adaptations of their animated classics, it only makes sense that they look towards turning 1998’s Mulan into a live-action film. However, instead of following in the footsteps of other films that merely retell the original story, like Cinderella and Beauty and The Beast, Mulan will be depicted as a large-scale epic that sees the titular character (played by Liu Yifei) do anything to protect the family that she loves, even if it means disguising herself as a man so that her ailing father does not have to go to war.

Check out our coverage of the film from this weekend’s D23 Expo here below.
