Disney released the first trailer for its upcoming live-action version of Mulan during today’s Women’s World Cup final, showing off a sweeping adventure flick set in China’s Han dynasty. Mulan’s horse Khan also makes a short appearance at the beginning of the video, which features a classic conversation between Mulan and her parents.
Directed by Niki Caro (The Zookeeper’s Wife), the live-action Mulan will see Chinese actress Liu Yifei also known as Crystal Liu, will play the title role and Jet Li will play the emperor of China.
As reported by Hollywood Reporter, Yoson An will play Chen Honghui, who becomes Mulan’s most important ally and eventual love interest. The remake is based on the 1998 animated movie about a Chinese woman who disguises herself as a warrior to spare her father from joining the military. The original film grossed more than $300 million worldwide.
Mulan will hit the theatres in March 2020.
