Chinese actress Liu Yifei was signed on to portray Mulan last November after an extensive worldwide search that evaluated 1,000 hopefuls.

Mulan, released by the studio in 1998, adapted the ancient Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, a female warrior who disguises herself as a man in order to take the place of her aging father in the military. Donnie Yen, who played the infamous Chirrut Îmwe in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story revealed he will be in the new adaption, according to Variety. The movie, now set for a 2020 release, will be directed by Nikki Caro, who directed Whale Rider, McFarland, USA and The Zookeeper's Wife.

Disney's live-action Mulan has landed two massive Chinese stars, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. The 1998 film featured the voices of Ming-Na Wen, Eddie Murphy, Miguel Ferrer, and BD Wong, and included some killer songs, like this one!

While this is unbelievable, I'm even more excited to talk about who's going to be playing the emperor: Jet Li! "And I can't wait". Really, this is the latest example of how Disney's straying from their animated film with the live-action rendition. It is the latest in a series of live-action reboots of Disney classics, following Maleficent, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, Beauty And The Beast and next year's Dumbo. Countless more are in development, like Aladdin, The Lion King, and Mulan - the latter of which we now know a little more about. And then there are the films that will serve as sequels to their animated movies, like Christopher Robin and Prince Charming. In fact, Disney probably announced ten more as I was typing this. Mulan will now hit theaters March 27, 2020.
