We’ve got casting news! Utkarsh Ambudkar joins live action Mulan cast as Skath! Ambudkar is best known for his role of Donald in Universal’s Pitch Perfect movies. Also joining the Mulan cast is Marco Polo actor Ron Yuan. Yuan is said to be playing the role of Sergeant Qiang.

The pair will be joining Liu Yifei (playing Mulan), in this Niki Caro-directed movie about a young woman who disguises herself as a man in order to spare her elderly father from having to join the military.

Other actors attached to the project include Jet Li as the emperor, Donnie Yen as Mulan’s mentor, and Gong Li as the movie’s villain.

Mulan, is set to be released on March 27, 2020.  The film will begin shooting on location in China and New Zealand at the end of the summer. Original the film was set to hit theaters this year but was pushed back by two years.

It was reported last  year that this will not be a musical, like the Disney animated version was. It has also been reported the Mulan’s love interest from the animated version, Li Shang, will not appear in this live-action version. Instead her love interest will be Chen Honghui, a fellow army recruit.

Chris Bender, Jason Reed and Jake Weiner are producing the film.

Are you excited for this live action remake of the animated Disney classic, Mulan?  What do you think about the newest casting news?  I loved Ambudkar in Pitch Perfect so I’m excited to see him on the big screen once again!
