Disney's Live-Action 'Mulan' Casts Donnie Yen As Mulan's Mentor


The movie, now set for a 2020 release, will be directed by Nikki Caro, who directed Whale Rider, McFarland, USA and The Zookeeper's Wife.

Action superstar Donnie Yen will be starring in the upcoming Mulan, the live-action reboot of Disney's 1998 classic animated feature of the same name.

Since debuting as Jui'er in 1987's Red Sorghum, Gong Li has gone on to star in a number of Zhang Yimou's films, including The Story of Qiu Ju, Raise the Red Lantern, Curse of the Golden Glower, and Coming Home. That inspires Hua Mulan (played by Liu Yifei) to disguise herself as a man so her father doesn't have to go and thus kicks the film into motion (via THR).

Skripals were poisoned by high-purity novichok, watchdog confirms
Russian Federation has strongly denied any involvement, and insists it has destroyed all of its chemical weapons. The watchdog did not blame Russian Federation for the attack nor did it name the specific chemical agent used.

Jet is set to star as the emperor of China, who orders the mobilization of troops via the conscription of one male from each household, while Gong will take on the villainous role of a powerful witch. Like Gong's new villain, Mulan's sister is yet another new role added to the live-action production, signaling an even more expansive vision for the world and characters of Mulan this time around.

The original film was animated and featured the voices of Ming-Na Wen, Eddie Murphy, Miguel Ferrer, and BD Wong. Chris Bender, Jason Reed and Jake Weiner are producing.

Mulan will be a re-teaming for Yen and Disney, with the actor having starred in the studio's first Star Wars stand-alone, Rogue One.
