Live-Action Remake Of Disney’s Mulan Receiving Rave Reviews At Debut Screening

The first reactions to the much-anticipated live-action remake of Disney’s Mulan have now hit the internet, and the consensus from many critics seem to be that this is by far one of Disney’s best live-action adaptations of one of their animation classics.

The latest live-action adaptation of a Disney classic, Mulan follows Hua Mulan (Yifei Liu) as she disguises herself as a man to join the Imperial Chinese Army. After the Emperor of China (Jet Li) conscripts one man from each family to face Bori Khan’s (Jason Scott Lee) invading Hun army, Mulan secretly takes her ailing father’s place.

Many fans were initially apprehensive to hear the live-action Mulan would make significant changes to the original 1998 cartoon, and draw more from the original Chinese ballad, such as forgoing the iconic musical numbers and removing comic relief Mushu.
