Disney in March of last year announced that it would be postponing the release of its live-action remake of the movie Mulan. Mulan is an epic-animated adventure movie of 1998 and has by far remained one of the most unconventional Disney princess storylines. In August 2018 we saw the first look of the live-action Mulan version by Disney. In this one, Liu Yifei stars as Mulan, the princess, in the starring role. Production began last August and took place in China and New Zealand.
