Disney Has Finally Found Its Mulan And She's ideal!

01 Декабря 2017

Walt Disney Studios has cast Liu Yifei as the title character Mulan in the live-action epic.

A team of casting directors made a visit to about five continents and saw almost 1,000 candidates for the role, which wanted credible martial arts skills, the talent to speak English and the most indescribable requirement of all: star quality.

Disney announced the news yesterday on their blog and the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, Sina Weibo.

Liu, 30, is a popular actress in China, where she's nicknamed the "Fairy Sister".

The upcoming film is inspired by the Ballad of Mulan, in which a young woman impersonates a man to take her father's place in the army, and Disney's 1998 musical adaptation of the poem, which grossed more than $120 million at the domestic box office and $304 million worldwide. News of her selection was met with celebration in China and overseas, especially following waves of dissatisfaction against Hollywood for its persistent casting of Caucasians as Asian characters. A team of casting directors visited five continents to find an actress who was well-versed in martial arts and English and - most of all - possessed star quality.

Niki Caro, who most newly helmed The Zookeeper's Wife, is directing Disney's live-action Mulan, which is being molded by Chris Bender, Jason Reed, and Jake Weiner and eyeing a 2019 release. She also starred differing Emile Hirsch in Danish auteur Bille August's period passion The Chinese Widow, which solved the Shanghai International Film Festival in June. Disney has finally found the actress to play the titular role for its upcoming live-action remake of Mulan.
