Live Action Mulan

Ta-MulanWe have word today that a live action Mulan film is in the works. We get the following scoop thanks to our friends at the movieweb:

A live-action feature version of Mulan, the legend of a heroic Chinese girl-warrior that Disney popularized in their 1998 animated movie, will be among the first films made by Xinhua Media Entertainment in partnership with the state-run China Film Group, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“China Film and Xinhua came in with significant funding to make this a co-production when we met them at Cannes in May,” Christopher Brough said. “They liked that we were taking a Hollywood approach to a classic Chinese story.”

I am wondering if we will be getting overdubbed or subtitled versions in the rainbow of languages other than Chinese. This news release really doesn’t say if the film will stay home in China or if it will be distributed internationally. I for one hope it makes it’s way around the globe.

I have yet to see Disney’s take on the Mulan tale, perhaps if I can get my hands on this one I will watch them back to back. Mulan Vs. Mulan.
