Obviously: Disney Announces Live-Action ‘Mulan’

Obviously: Disney Announces Live-Action 'Mulan'

Alice In Wonderland,” “Malificent,” “Cinderella,” “Beauty & The Best,” “Dumbo“….Disney has certainly found what they think is a winning live-action formula, and frankly I’m just surprised they haven’t tried to cram all of this into one shared universe. Either way, another animated movie from the Disney vault is getting a live-action redo.

THR reports that “Mulan” is getting a remake. There’s a script in place from Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek, and Chris Bender and J.C. Spink (who both worked on “We’re The Millers“) are producing. The original movie did decent business in 1998, earning $336 million worldwide, along with a Golden Globe nomination, and it spawned the 2005 sequel, “Mulan II,” which went straight to DVD, and that Disney would probably prefer you just forget about. So it’s proven itself once, and Disney is betting on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan working again.

No word yet on who will direct or, perhaps more importantly, who will take the lead role, but we’re sure this will get a lot of people talking, so hit the comments section.
