Despite the fact that Disney’s classic animated movies all expertly tugged on our heartstrings with their moving stories about love and family, the studio’s live-action remakes—while visually impressive—have largely been somewhat lacking in that emotional X factor, but the latest Mulan trailer suggests that might be about to change.
Disney just announced production has begun on Niki Caro’s highly-anticipated live-action version of Mulan, and released the first photo of actress Liu Yifei as the title character. That’s her above, obviously, looking as fierce and badarse as one would have hoped.
While the first Rogue One trailer revealed Felicity Jones was playing a character named Jyn Erso, all the other characters remained nameless, forcing us to refer to them by their actors’ names. No longer!
