Disney releases new action-packed “Mulan” trailer

Following the recent news that Niki Caro’s live-action Mulan adaptation is heading to streaming service Disney+, the studio has released a brand new poster and trailer which confirms the move.

Described as ‘premier access’ on the poster, the film will set you back $29.99, unless your region is one of those where the theatrical release is still going ahead, which includes China.

Check out the trailer and poster below!

When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.

“Mulan” features a celebrated international cast that includes: Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor.

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” and will be available on Disney+ from 4 September.
