2020 has well and truly interrupted the film release schedule but in a bid to combat the closure of cinemas around the globe, last week Disney announced it would move the hotly-anticipated Mulan adaption on to Disney+. Set to drop to selected regions from September 4, fans will be able to rent the film for $29.99 USD (or the rough cost of a cinema ticket). In the lead up, a new teaser has been released and provides a first look at the tales’ villains.
Like past trailers, Mulan (played by Liu Yifei) is seen whipping out some badass fighting skills which now lands her face-to-face with who is presumably Bori Khan (played by Jason Scott Lee). Another character, Xian Lang fronted by Gong Li, adds another element to the live-action adaption with the painted woman an ally with Khan’s army. Yet disappointingly, no Mushu.
“To save her ailing father from serving in the Imperial Army, a fearless young woman disguises herself as a man to battle northern invaders in China,” according to the synopsis. The cast also includes, Donnie Yen as Commander Tung, Yoson An as Cheng Honghui and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film was originally slated for early April.
Watch the brand new teaser below. The countdown to September 4 officially begins.
