The legendary warrior will return to theaters in Spring 2020.
Disney has released the first teaser trailer for Mulan. The film serves as a live-action remake of the studio's 1998 animated film, and is set to premiere on March 27, 2020.
When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.

Yifei Liu stars as Mulan, and is joined by Donnie Yen as Commander Tung, Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan, Yoson An as Cheng Honghui, Gong Li as Xianniang, and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro (Whale Rider, The Zookeeper's Wife, North Country) with a script written by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem "The Ballad of Mulan."
Disney's original animated version of Mulan premiered in 1998 and stars the vocal talents of Ming-Na Wen as Mulan, Eddie Murphy as Mushu, and BD Wong as Shang. This new remake is the latest in a series of recent live-action and realistic CG adaptations based on classic Disney animated films, including Maleficent, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo, Aladdin, and The Lion King. Likewise, a new version of The Little Mermaid is also in the works.
