Starting from Beauty and The Beast in 2017 to The Lion King in 2019, Disney has been on a run when it comes to live-action remakes. And it looks like there is more of the same for the fans. Disney’s Mulan, the animated film released in 1998, is all set to be remade into a live-action movie.
Disney’s Mulan: Plot
Based on the Chinese folklore ” The ballad of Mulan”, the film then follows the journey of a Chinese who has disguised herself as a man to save her father and earn the respect of a grateful nation. The movie will once again bring the story of the spirited and determined Hua Jun to life. The original one came with a full overhaul from top to bottom. Similar to the original one, the new adaptation is also set to the song titled “Loyal Brave True” from Christina Aguilera. But is still yet unknown where the new one will feature all the songs from the original.
As per the filmmakers, a live-action film will almost bring the entire movie to life, making the girl seem as real on her way to war against Northern invaders. Harry Gregson-Williams, famous for his soundtracks for many films such as Shrek, Narnia, and Enemy Of The State, will be composing the music for Mulan as well.
Owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19, many films have been delayed. Sadly, Mulan too has joined the list along with No Time To Die, Antlers, and A Quiet Place Part II. Mulan was supposed to hit the screens in the UK and Ireland on March 27. But the film has now been shifted to a new date altogether. The film is slated to release on July 24, 2020.
