Kevin Hart might be playing a big role in the new live-action movie Mulan; Mushu. Mushu is Fa Mulan’s closest companion throughout the Mulan series and the comic relief. He is a scrawny, tiny, red, orange-accented Chinese dragon with blue horns and has quite the personality.
Mulan is just one of the many new Disney live-action movies headed to the big screen. The live-action will be a reboot of the classic animated movie from 1998, based on Chinese legend as well.
The original Mushu was voiced by Eddie Murphy, but the rumor is clear that Disney is looking to snatch Kevin Hart to voice the feisty dragon!
Kevin Hart’s history in stand up comedy and comedy movies shows he’d be a good fit for the role, but the studio is taking it’s time to narrow down the cast list and looking at other actors.
Some fans are hoping for the return of Eddie Murphy as Mushu just like James Earl Jones is returning at Mufasa in The Lion King live-action remake.
While nothing is confirmed, if Hart is selected, he will join the fantastic cast including Liu Yifei as Mulan, Donnie Yen as Commander Tung, Jason Lee Scott as Bori Khan (the villain), and Jet Li as the Emporer.
Stay tuned for more updates as we find out if Kevin Hart will be playing Mushu, Mulan’s sassy sidekick in the new live-action film.
