Directed by Niki Caro (2002’s Whale Rider), 2020’s Mulan follows the same plot of 1998’s animated version, which was of course based on the centuries-old Chinese legend of Hua Mulan. Starring Yifei Liu as the eponymous character, Mulan follows a young woman as she breaks tradition and enters the men-only Imperial Army to help China fight northern invaders. On her quest to be a warrior, Mulan fights to earn the respect of her nation and her ailing father.
Disney‘s Mulan is slated to hit theaters March 27, 2020.
