I have an awesome post to share with you today! It’s info that’s hot off the press from yesterday’s news – about an awesome upcoming movie release about one of our favorite fairy tales!
In March 2015, Disney started planning a live-action film about the legend. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, two of the screenplay writers for Jurassic World and the sequel to Avatar, are rewriting the script of Mulan that Disney bought from Lauren Hynek and Elizabeth Martin. The original screenplay was considered only a starting point for a new story that will be a combination of the historical ballad of Hua Mulan and aspects of the animated Disney film Mulan of 1998.
And now, this Mulan remake finally has a release date:
November 2, 2018
So far, neither director nor actors have been announced. However, Disney is launching a world-wide search for a Chinese actress to play Mulan, perhaps in response to the petition to make the lead actress actually Chinese to match the legend.
I don’t know about you, but I am definitely looking forward to this movie, especially since it will keep one of my favorite characters from the animation – Mushu!
Meanwhile, have fun listening to one of our favorite songs from the movie: “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from the YouTube channel xFliiy.
