Get ready for it: Disney is making a live-action Mulan!
Who is this girl I see, staring straight back at me? When will my reflection show…that the exciting hope of a live-action
Mulan is actually coming true?! Well, friends, they may not be making a man out of her, but it has been officially confirmed that a non-cartoon version of everyone’s favourite talking-dragons-and-Attila-the-Hun-centric Disney movie is in the works.
Today’s announcement of a live-action remake of 1998’s Mulan follows a trend at the studios of late—an incredibly successful
Cinderella starring Lily James is still hot at the box offices, and an
Emma Watson-fronted Beauty and the Beast is in production. A key point for us—whether or not the classic soundtrack will be reprised—is hard to predict based on those two films, since Cinderella did away with all the singing entirely (and replaced it with Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter, a fair trade), but the new
Beauty and the Beast will be all singing, all dancing. No word on casting or release date, but when we know, you’ll know (so you can save us a spot in the ticket line, obvs).
