Watch The New Trailer for Disney's 'Mulan' Live-Action Remake

The movie is slated to premiere in 2020.

UPDATE (December 5, 2019): After sharing a first glimpse at the movie in July, Disney now unveils a brand new trailer for its upcoming live-action remake of Mulan.

In addition to the film’s protagonist Hua Mulan portrayed by Liu Yifei, the full-length trailer introduces audiences to the remaining cast, including Donnie Yen (who plays Commander Tung), Gong Li (the movie’s villain, Xian Lang), Tzi Ma (Hua Zhou, Mulan’s father) and Jet Li (the Emperor of China).

Mulan will be in theaters on March 27, 2020. Watch the trailer above to relive some of the most memorable scenes from the 1998 Disney animation of the same title.

Back in August, actress Liu faced social media backlash after making a controversial statement on China’s social media platform Weibo, leading to netizens expressing their disappointment with the hashtag #BoycottMulan on Twitter.


ORIGINAL STORY (July 7, 2019): Disney has released the first official trailer for its highly anticipated live-action remake of Mulan. Unveiled during today’s Women’s World Cup final, the video offers us a glimpse at the the upcoming movie that is set in China’s Han dynasty. Directed by Niki Caro, the film stars Chinese-American actress Liu Yifei as the defiant warrior Hua Mulan, who disguises herself as a man to enlist herself in the Imperial Army in place of her sickly father, Hua Zhou (played by Tzi Ma).

The trailer features a remake of the iconic scene from Disney’s 1998 animation, where Mulan gets all dressed up to meet the matchmaker as arranged by her family. “Yes, I will bring honor to us all,” Liu’s Mulan utters the famous line. Later on in the clip, we’re given a sneak peek at some of the epic war scenes where the army battles against the Northern Invaders that are attacking China.

Mulan will also see Hong Kong actor Donnie Yen (Ip Man, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) playing the role of Commander Tung, Gong Li as a new villain called Xian Lang, Jet Li as the Emperor, and newcomer Yoson An as Mulan’s love interest, Cheng Honghui.

Mulan’s beloved sidekick, the dragon Mushu, will reportedly be replaced by a phoenix in the new movie.

Disney’s new adaptation of Mulan is slated to hit theaters on March 27, 2020. Watch the trailer above and stay tuned here for any further updates. Below, take a look at the official poster of the movie.
