Disney's Live Action "Mulan" Has Cast The Title Role

Liu is one of almost 1,000 hopefuls from five continents that Disney saw while trying to cast this iconic role.  Requirements such as credible martial arts skills, the ability to speak English and that special Disney star quality lengthened the search, but they found the total package in Liu.  She is currently one of China’s most popular actresses.  Liu spent part of her childhood in Queen, N.Y. and is fluent in English.  She appeared in both 2008’s The Forbidden Kingdom, alongside Jackie Chan and Jet Li, and 2014’s Outcast, opposite Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen.

Mulan being directed by Niki Caro, and produced by Jason Reed, Chris Bender, and Jake Weiner. The live-action film will be inspired by both the legendary Ballad of Mulan and the Disney animated classic Mulan.  At this point we are hearing the studio is aiming for a 2019 release date.
