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

To set the movie same with the cartoon version, the team focused on locating an ethnically Chinese young woman to play the role of Hua Mulan, who, in the film, disguised herself as a man to substitute her father's army conscription during the fifth-century in China.

So after nearly two decades and a string of live-action adaptations that Disney lined up, it goes without saying that Mulan was one of the must-have reboots.

The film went on to earn Dollars 304.3 million worldwide.

Liu's casting will be welcomed by those who have criticised Hollywood's "whitewashing" (casting white actors in ethnic roles).

Casting directors searched across five continents and auditioned almost 1,000 actors in a year-long search for a Mulan with "credible martial arts skills, the ability to speak English and the most ineffable requirement of all: star quality", The Hollywood Reporter says. You know, when Scarlett Johansson played a Japanese character in Ghost in the Shell and Matt Damon's lead role in Chinese historical movie The Great Wall.

Chinese actress Liu Yifei has been chosen to star as the female warrior in the upcoming remake.

Following news of the casting, Ming-Na, who previously urged Disney filmmakers to recruit a Chinese actress to portray the heroine, sent a message of congratulations to the star on her Twitter account.

"In Liu, Disney found the complete package".

The 30-year-old actress, who is also known as Crystal Liu, is a well-known Chinese model, actress and singer. Yufei starred in a number of television dramas throughout the '00s and turned up opposite Jackie Chan in 2008's The Forbidden Kingdom when she was a child actor.
