After a worldwide search Disney’s live action Mulan production has finally found their star. And if you thought that the title role would go to a white actress, have no fear! Your new Mulan is Chinese actress Liu Yifei, also known as Crystal Liu.
Mulan director Niki Caro has broken my heart. Don’t get me wrong, she’s an amazing director, and I’m thrilled Disney is hiring more women like her to head their films. But she’s now saying the live-action Mulan most likely won’t have singing, which means no “I’ll Make a Man Out of You.” No, Mulan, NO.
Casting is underway for the live-action remake of Mulan and, I have to say, I’m surprised they haven’t yet found their Mulan given the plethora of talent available.
Disney is once again forcing us to relive our childhoods, this time with a live-action film version of Mulan.
