Disney has been hard at work producing live action remakes of their beloved animated classics, with many more already in development. Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book and last year’s Beauty and the Beast have been massive hits for the House of Mouse, and while an adaptation of the critically acclaimed Mulan is still on the way, it’ll be a bit longer before we’ll actually see it.
Mulan will hit theaters on March 27, 2020, according to an announcement by Disney on Thursday. The film was originally set for release on November 18 of this year, but has since been pushed back once already, and now landing on its new 2020 date. A remake of the 1994 classic, The Lion King, is also scheduled for release next year.
The original Mulan was released back in 1998, based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan. Directed by Barry Cook and Tony Bancroft, the film went on to gross $300 million worldwide, and received positive reviews from critics. Still considered a Disney classic today, the remake has been a huge topic of discussion among fans.
The 2020 remake will star Chinese actress Liu Yifei, also known as Crystal Liu, and will be directed by Niki Caro. Be sure to keep it here at SuperBroMovies for all the latest and greatest in entertainment news.
