Cameras are rolling on the live-action adaptation of Mulan at Disney. The film is currently filming in China and New Zealand, and is scheduled for a March 2020 release. The first official image release sees actress Liu Yifei suiting up as the titular hero.
Yifei looks the part of the iconic hero, which is based off a legendary tale in Chinese culture. Mulan was previously made into a successful and highly lucrative animated feature at Disney featuring the voices of Ming-Na Wen and Eddie Murphy.
The new live-action version will see Yifei star alongside established Asian actors such as Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Rosalind Chao, Gong Li and Jet Li. Mulan is being directed by Niki Caro.
