'Mulan' Is Set To Be The Next Live-Action Disney Movie And We're So Pumped
IT'S HAPPENING, YOU GUYS, IT'S REALLY HAPPENING: "Mulan" is getting a live-action film!
(This is the part when you freak out.)
The 1998 animated Disney film is following in the footsteps of other Disney classics such as "Cinderella," "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Little Mermaid."
We recently got our first look at Emma Watson's Belle for the live-action "Beauty and the Beast," which looks amazing.
And I don't want to be overdramatic or anything, but I'm already prepared for this "Mulan" reboot to be EVEN BETTER.
According to a report from Variety, the project is being helmed by Sony Pictures and all we know about it so far is it will be filmed in China (which is definitely promising).
No word yet on casting, but we can only pray Ming-Na Wen, Lea Salonga, BD Wong and Eddie Murphy will be involved somehow.
But most importantly, I'm so ready for the real-life Li Shang, you guys.
THINK OF THOSE REAL, NOT ANIMATED, RIPPLING MUSCLES TEACHING US TO BE A MAN!
And of course, I can't wait for a real-life Mulan to be the baddest bitch in China and basically run that town.
Today is a very good day.
