I’ve criticized Disney in the past for their work on live-action films. As much as I’ve loved pretty much all of the adaptations of their animated work, there’s no doubt that they’ve been playing it too safe, with this year’s Aladdin and The Lion King arguably playing it even safer. And yet, there’s been one film that I’ve been excited for nonetheless.
Unlike a lot of Disney’s other films, Mulan is one that could actually use a live-action take, as its more grounded setting and realistic stakes and desires could be better suited for the story than even its animated counterpart.
We’ve seen a trailer so far, but it’s been months since then, and many other movies have come and gone. Now, out of the blue, Disney has shared that a new poster is here and a new trailer on the way.
The trailer will hit tomorrow morning, and I’m excited to see more of what this tale has to offer on the big screen. Of course, this film had some other issues, including its star landing it hot water after she posted a message on social media in support of mainland China in the midst of conflict between it and Hong Kong. I’ll not dive into that here, but I did wonder how and if it would affect the film.
As it stands, it looks like Disney looks to continue on with it.
