'90s kids will surely remember how Disney made their childhoods worth remembering via 1998's 'Mulan' movie. We are sure used to Disney creating animated movies featuring prim and proper princesses with ideal love stories filled with tons of songs on the background. First off, Mulan's character itself veers away from the traditional Disney princess route as she takes on the warrior-type package while maintaining that sweet young girl's innocence with her. Whatever made Mulan so loved by lots of people is theirs to rekindle with the upcoming 2020 live-action Mulan adaptation. Will this new film lead Disney into another movie renaissance just as the first film did in the late '90s? Though there are tons of questions lingering at the back of Disney fans' heads, the anticipation for the new live-action Mulan film is at a high. With merely months away from its release, have you seen the movie's trailer yet?

With 'North Country' head honcho Niki Caro at the helm of this new Disney project, can we expect lots of things from the original animated film to resurface? With a formidable cast headlined by Chinese-American actress Liu Yifei and Donnie Yen, would we see a real modern touch on this film set in ancient times? We know that Mushu will not be in the film, so what else is there to be excited about? On this list, we have some things that will make you excited to watch the upcoming Mulan live-action film. So get ready to relive one of Disney's most precious titles in the flesh and enjoy the upcoming film.

    For this live-action adaptation of Mulan, Disney has made sure that they have used up all resources to find the right poster girl for female empowerment. Casting is as vital as anything in movies and Liu Yifei has been the lucky face to own the spotlight as Mulan herself. We just hope that this role suits her well, but based on just how she looks in that red robe, there's not much to say!

    When we're talking about Disney movies, we can visualize fancy outfits and bright colors all the time. This is what makes fans anticipate just how well-made Mulan's costumes are going to be in the film. The movie having been set in ancient China also adds up to the element of color and tradition that is sure to be depicted via strong wardrobes in this film.

    If you know who Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver are, then you must have been proud of big hits like Avatar and Jurassic World. This husband and wife tandem takes their talents into this live-action Disney adaptation. As challenging as it is to bring a warrior Disney princess into the big screen via a real person, the couple's experience in writing is sure enough to get fans excited. 

  1. 4Chris Bender is going to produce the film

    Well, we all know one of Hollywood's best producers in Chris Bender. He gave us movies like The hangover, Butterfly Effect, and American Pie. It is going to be quite interesting how much of Bender's signature production value actually rubs off in this new Mulan movie, considering that it is quite different from his previous works. Other producers for this film are Jason Reed, J.C. Spink, and Jake Weiner, who all have production credits shared with Bender on previous films.

  2. 5It will start a wave of live-action remakes

    Let's just put it this way, Mulan' was already a success as it was released way back in 1998. However, it is still worthy of a live-action adaptation considering its good story and mass appeal. If this 2020 version turns out to be a real blockbuster, we just might see Disney invest in more live-action remakes of other Disney classics which didn't pan out as well when released.
