Mulan’s live-action is getting closer to reaching theaters.
With Liu Yifei in the lead role, the Walt Disney Studios production received last Sunday, January 26, a new promotional video that reveals a new edition of the official trailer, emphasizing the drama behind the story.
Check out the new video below:
Synopsis: When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from invaders from the north, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honorable warrior, steps in to replace his sick father. Masked man, Hua Jun, is tested at every step and must take advantage of his inner strength and embrace his true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform you into an honorable warrior and earn the respect of a grateful nation … and a proud father.
Contrary to the 1998 animation, this live-action film promises to bring greater fidelity to the original story, the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan, and respect for Chinese culture, elements that are strongly criticized in the animated version. For this reason, Mushu dragon was replaced by a phoenix, although such adaptation did not please the western audience of the feature.
In Brazil, the film’s premiere is scheduled for March 26, 2020, in theaters.
