Over the weekend we bought the primary teaser trailer for Disney’s first live-action remake of 2020. Mulan appears to be like fairly lovely based mostly on the trailer, and lots of people are actually excited for it. A type of individuals who is de facto excited is Ming-Na Wen. The Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D. actress was the voice of Mulan within the authentic Disney animated basic, and he or she is as able to see the brand new movie as anyone.
So the unique Mulan has given her seal of approval to the brand new technology’s Mulan. For probably the most half, audiences appear to be in assist of the brand new film as properly. Whereas a vocal contingent appears to be upset there was no signal of Mushu the speaking dragon from the animated film seen within the remake, the epic great thing about the trailer shines by means of and teases what’s going to doubtless be a powerful movie.
The brand new Mulan stars Chinese language actress Liu Yifei within the title position. Whereas the brand new trailer would not give us a speaking dragon, it does in any other case arrange the story that we all know. Mulan is working with a matchmaker to discover a romantic match, one thing she is not essentially all that excited for. Nonetheless, as a substitute of discovering love, she finds battle when she finally ends up becoming a member of the Chinese language military in disguise.
The opposite main change between the unique Mulan and the remake is that the brand new film definitely would not look like a musical. Not solely is there no music within the trailer, however the look and tone of the clips definitely do not seem like full musical numbers would match. It is an attention-grabbing selection if solely as a result of Disney has proven with the success of flicks like Magnificence and the Beast and Aladdin that the nearer the remake is to the unique, the extra profitable it’s on the field workplace.
The Disney remake practice has been transferring alongside fairly properly in latest months. Whereas Dumbo did not set the world on fireplace, that has been largely overshadowed by the success of Aladdin and in simply over per week we’ll see The Lion King debut, in what doubtless would have been the best grossing film of the yr if Avengers: Endgame had come out at a unique time.
We’re additionally getting Maleficent: Mistress of Evil in October, which technically is not a remake anymore, because it’s an authentic story, however it’s the first sequel to a live-action remake since 102 Dalmatians in 2000.
Subsequent yr we’ll see Mulan begin the yr with a March launch, and Cruella on the finish of the yr, because it comes out at Christmas. That movie is predicted to be an origin story of types for the Disney villain, with Emma Stone within the lead position.

I’m with Ming-Na Wen on this one. I suppose the film appears to be like epic and the truth that it is not an ideal copy of the animated authentic is an efficient factor. I’ve sen that film already. I wish to see one thing new, and Mulan the motion hero could be very a lot that.
