Mulan is the epic tale of a fearless young woman who risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known, opens in U.S. theaters on March 27, 2020.
I love that Disney is remaking all the animated movies I grew up watching into live action. I’ll be honest even though Mulan wasn’t always one of my favorite Disney movies growing up, I’ve seen it quite a few times and easily know all the songs. I do also love the premise of the movie. I’ll admit the live action does look good and I know Mason definitely wants to see it and can’t wait for the sword fighting. Do you like the animated Mulan? Are you excited for this live action? Tell me what you think.
