The first teaser trailer is out for the Disney live action movie adaptation of the animated movie Mulan based on the Chinese folklore story of Hua Mulan. Normally I don’t cover Hollywood but the live action movie stars popular Chinese actress Crystal Liu (Liu Yi Fei) as the titular Mulan along with veterans Gong Li, Donnie Yen, and Jet Li. I liked but didn’t love the animated Mulan but I’m loving this live action version which takes out the fantasy elements such as the talking dragon Mushu and also swaps out hunky male lead Li Shang for a younger male lead who is a fellow recruit in the army with Mulan. Crystal looks beautiful in either her girly self or training to become a warrior, she’s just got the steely and resolute look that suits Mulan well.
