Despite the fact that the film won’t be a musical, this new trailer for Disney’s live-action version of Mulan offers a couple of cheeky nods to the songs of the animated original…
Here’s the film’s synopsis:
Disney’s Mulan, the epic tale of a fearless young woman who risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known, opens in UK and Ireland cinemas in Spring 2020.
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.
