We have our first real look at the Disney Live-Action Remake for Mulan, and I feel like I can breathe a sigh of relief. Mulan is one of my personal favorite Disney films, and when I heard they weren’t making this remake a musical, my heart sunk a bit. Not only is the story one of my favorites, but so is the music choices. But, you know what? Based off of the trailer, taking the music out helps the tone and feel of the film, taking it away from being light-hearted and fun to darker and more serious, ultimately story-centric.
Apart from that, it appears to have a really nice sense of cinematography and action. Some of those shots that only give us a glimpse at the film look amazing while obviously containing shout-outs to the original while feeling unique all on its own. In general, I can say I’m excited for this film.
What did you think of this trailer? Are you excited to see the live-action remake of Mulan?
