Disney is Making Live-Action MULAN Remake

Disney Live-Action

Mulan will be the next Disney princess character to undergo a live-action makeover, stepping into footsteps of Cinderella and Belle.

THR reports that the Mouse House live-action take will likely stick closely to their 1998 film, similar to the model of Cinderella and the upcoming Beauty and the Beast that will hit theaters in March 2017 and stars Emma Watson.

The studio has bought a script from the newcomers Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek, based on a legend of a female warrior Hua Mulan from medieval China.

Disney is making a few more live-action remakes of their classic animated films, including Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book and Tim Burton’s Dumbo. They’ll probably announce Lady and the Tramp, The Emperor’s New Groove and Bambi before we see the first blockbuster to feature a non-white lead.

Dwayne Johnson is already onto something with his Bambi idea. Watch a clip with The Rock as the baby deer, all grown up.
