Mulan Remake Debuts Official Teaser Trailer & First Poster

Live-action remakes of animated Disney classics are now coming a mile a minute. The Lion King is set to hit in two weeks (July 19th) and The Little Mermaid is beginning to cast itself. But before that, Mulan will arrive in theaters, stripping itself of the classic songs from the original animated 1998 film and choosing to have the film as a more serious period piece. Sadly, the official teaser trailer released today for the film doesn’t convey as much of that as one might hope, taking away the elements that made the original film so popular. Hopefully, the full trailer released soon will better convey the potential of telling the story with more accurate Chinese culture put into it. Check it out below:

Mulan stars Liu Yifei, Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Gong Li, and Jet Li. It is directed by Niki Caro and is set to hit theaters March 27, 2020. In addition, check out the first poster for the film below:
