Production is officially underway on Disney's live-action Mulan with Liu Yifei in the starring role. Earlier today the media and entertainment conglomerate released the first look at Yifei in character.
The film is being directed by Niki Caro and also stars Donnie Yen as Commander Tung, Gong Li as the villain, and Xana Tang as Mulan's sister.
Though it's based on the animated classic, the live-action movie will have a different storyline with a love interest other than Li Shang and a witch as the villain. Don't count on seeing Mulan anytime soon though. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is slated for release in March 2020.
