'Mulan' fights her way through first trailer for Disney remake

The first trailer for Disney's highly anticipated live-action reboot of the film is finally here and the movie looks like it's going to be epic. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem 'The Ballad of Mulan'.

There will never be silence when it comes to Disney remakes.

There are no familiar songs included in the teaser because, well, there apparently won't be any in the full film either. This follows "Beauty & the Beast", "The Jungle Book", "Cinderella" and this year's "Aladdin" and "The Lion King".

The remake is expected to feature some new characters while losing a few old favourites.

Instead of falling in love with Chinese army captain Li Shang, Mulan falls in love with Honghui, who The Hollywood Reporter, describes as "a confident and ambitious recruit who joins Commander Tung's unit".

Another beloved Disney classic is getting the live-action treatment, and the first trailer is here.

Sadly, it's looking like fan-favorite Mushu won't be in the new remake.

During the sneak peek - which was shared during the Women's World Cup Final - a woman can be heard saying, "quiet, composed, graceful, discipline, these are the qualities we see in a good wife".

The cast includes: Liu, Donnie Yen, 55, Jason Scott Lee, 52, Yoson An, 27, Gong Li, 53, and Jet Li, 56. By the time spring 2020 rolls around and Mulan hits theaters, everybody ought to be DYING to see it and compare! No, these (with the exception of Dumbo) aren't particularly bad films, given the fantastic storytelling patterns within the Disney catalogue, but they feel, at least to me, uninspired.
