Disney Plans Live-Action “Mulan”

Disney has announced that their 1998 animated feature “Mulan” will be the next film in their toon library to get a live-action re-interpretation.

The studio has bought a script by writing team Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek which follows the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, the female warrior who was the main character in said film. That movie saw the young woman disguise herself as a man so she can take her father’s place in the army and go to war.

Chris Bender and J.C. Spink (“We’re the Millers”) are producing the new movie which will follow in the wake of the huge successes from the company in recent years including “Alice in Wonderland,” “Maleficent” and the currently in cinemas “Cinderella” along with upcoming live-action takes on “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Jungle Book” and “Dumbo”.
