Mulan joins the ranks of Cinderella, Beauty & The Beast, The Jungle Book and Dumbo in Disney’s attempt to remake all of their classics in live action. So far the plan seems to be working with Cinderella giving a strong performance both critically and financially. Beauty & The Beast has some good buzz around it due to the Emma Watson connection and Dumbo has well… Tim Burton, regardless of what you may feel about the director he is still a name that draws.
Now we have Mulan. Originally released in 1998, I was getting “too old” for movies like this at that stage of my life so I never got to enjoy Mulan as an adolescent. The story is about a young woman who disguises herself as a man so she can go to war and take the place of her elderly father to maintain the family honor. She also murders an entire army of Mongolians. So suffice to say, this would look pretty great in live action so sign me up.
