First Mulan trailer for live-action remake blazes with grace, action

Mulan: Watch the First Trailer for Disney's Live Action Remake!More

Chinese-American actress Liu Yifei will take on the titular role. Mulan responded by saying, "Yes, I will bring honor to us all".

The almost minute-and-a-half-long clip shows Yifei's Hua Mulan being told the ideal characteristics of a good wife, while showing footage of the character training for battle. "It is my duty to fight", the heroine declares in the clip.

Mulan has come to life, and the live-action version of the famed Disney animated film promises plenty of graceful action. And, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the film's director Niki Caro is only the second woman at the studio to direct a film with a $100 million budget, after filmmaker Ava DuVernay. This isn't the first of Disney's live-action remakes to receive initial backlash - Will Smith as the Genie in Aladdin received backlash at his first look and Halle Bailey's casting as Ariel is also garnering mixed responses. The trailer appears to follow the story beats of the original film, with Mulan set for an arranged marriage she doesn't want, before leaving to join the army undercover as a man. Fans seem to be open to the modifications, feeling that Disney is delivering something original and not just remaking Mulan beat for beat with the exact same songs, characters, and stories.
