Niki Caro, the director of Disney’s live-action “Mulan,” has shared a first image from set.
“Mulan. Day #1. Reflections,” Caro captioned the photo, which seems to show Liu Yifei, as the titular character, standing near a body of water — the whole picture is a gorgeous shade of green.
The film will also star Jet Li, Donnie Yen, Li Gong and Jason Scott Lee. Jason Reed, Chris Bender and Jake Weiner are producing, and Bill Kong is executive producing.
The animated “Mulan,” released in 1998, was based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan and was directed by Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook. It grossed $304.3 million worldwide after earning $22.7 million its opening weekend.
Disney’s live-action version of the classic Disney tale comes on the heels of various revival projects like “The Jungle Book” and “Beauty and the Beast,” both of which grossed over $1 billion worldwide. “Beauty and the Beast” grossed $174.8 million its opening weekend alone. A remake of “The Lion King” is one of many upcoming live-action projects.
“Mulan” will hit theaters on March 27, 2020.
