Here We Go Again: Disney Now Wants a Live Action Mulan

This whole live action remake trend started with Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland in 2010, and since then we got Maleficent and Cinderella, with a lot more are coming our way: The Jungle Book, Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, Beauty and the Beast and Dumbo. You can now add Mulan to the list. Yup, Disney is remaking another one of its classic animated film as a live action movie.

Mulan (1998, directed by Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook) is the story of Fa Mulan, a young girl who enrolls in the Chinese army disguised as a man to protect her elderly father. She fights and defeats to Huns, bringing honour to her family.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today and also revealed that the script is being written by Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek. We don't know yet when the live action Mulan will be released, or who will direct it.

What are your feelings on this new live action remake? Happy, excited, angry, sad, devastated? Share your thoughts.
