Disney’s series of live-action fairy tale remakes shows no sign of slowing down–next up is Mulan, which releases in March. It’s an update of the 1998 animated hit about a teenage girl in ancient China who disguises herself as a man to fight against invaders. A new trailer is set to screen during the Super Bowl this weekend, and a new trailer has arrived.
While previous Mulan trailers were quite plot-focused, this one is only 30 seconds long, so it doesn’t wait around. It features some of the spectacular action that we can expect from the movie, which is clearly influenced by martial arts and wuxia cinema, and should help it stand apart from the animated film. Check it out below.
Mulan stars Liu Yifei in the lead role, and the cast also includes a number of high profile Asian stars, such as Donnie Yen, Jet Li, and Gong Li. It’s directed by Niki Caro and hits theaters on March 27.
The only other Disney live-action remake with a confirmed release date is the 101 Dalmatians spin-off Cruella, which will star Emma Stone and releases in May 2021. But there are plenty more in the works, including The Little Mermaid, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, Bambi, and a sequel to The Jungle Book.
