Live action Mulan coming in 2018

Disney's Mulan came towards the tail end of the 90s resurgence for the studio and remains a fun feaure with some gorgeous animation and an energetic performance by Eddie Murphy. It's not a classic but one you might have fond memories for. Now it's being remade as a live action feature...

This follows a new pattern for Disney revisiting their animated films in live-action retellings. Cinderella and Maleficent did decent numbers and The Jungle Book exploded at the box office, so expect this trend to continue for a good while yet.

A version had been attempted by the house of mouse a few years back but it's fully happening right now, with the latest news confirming a release date of November 2018. Disney also confirmed that the hunt for a Chinese lead is currently underway, which makes it seem like they're going to have quite a rush to get that process completed, a director chosen and pre-production sorted in time.

There's merit to the idea of creating an epic action/adventure film, especially with a Chinese cast to get a foothold in that lucrative market. It remains to be seen whether we're also going to get musical numbers for this story of a young woman pretending to be a man to go off to war.
