Like many of Disney's past live-action remakes, "Mulan" will follow the 1998 animated version which itself was loosely based on the Chinese story "Hua Mulan" created by Guo Maoqian. Following Disney's current trend of re-releasing their classics, director Niki Caro brings Mulan to life. "Reflection" and "I'll Make a Man Out of You" are sweet, but Matthew Wilder and David Zippel's music and lyrics never had the popularity or staying power of Alan Menken, Howard Ashman, or Tim Rice. Starring Liu Yifei as Mulan, this film showcases a fearless warrior who fights for the honor of China and the honor of her family. He's been replaced by Cheng Honghui (played by Yoson An), an ambitious and slightly cocky recruit who's a member of the unit overseen by Commander Tung (Donnie Yen), Mulan's mentor and the leader of the Imperial Regiment.

The trailer introduces the movie's handsome setting and heroine, Hua Mulan, showcasing her transformation from obedient daughter to China's greatest warrior.

A determined look on her face and her arrow poised to strike, this is the Mulan fans old and new have loved or will come to love. By the time spring 2020 rolls around and Mulan hits theaters, everybody ought to be DYING to see it and compare!
The live action tale of a 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 U.S. theaters on March 27, 2020.
