Disney Is Making A Live-Action Mulan

Disney is developing a live-action version of its 1998 animated movie “Mulan.” Chris Bender and J.C. Spink (We're the Millers) are producing the new project.

Disney bought a script that revisits the story of Fa Mulan, a female warrior who fought in the Chinese army, that fans first saw in the Academy Award-nominated animated film Mulan back in 1998.

The 1998 film, directed by Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook, followed a young woman who disguises herself as a man so she can take her father's place in the army and go to war. With the help of her trusty dragon sidekick Mushu, she becomes a skilled warrior and, eventually, one of the country's greatest heroines. It earned $304.3 million worldwide, earned Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations and resulted in a 2005 direct-to-DVD sequel, Mulan II.

Disney’s seen an impressive run with its live-action versions of animated films starting in 2010 with “Alice in Wonderland,” followed by last year’s “Maleficent” and this year’s “Cinderella,” which has topped $336 million worldwide in three weeks. It’s developing a live-action version of “Beauty and the Beast” starring Emma Watson with a release already set for March 17, 2017.
