Mulan is all set to hit theaters on March 27th. In celebration of the upcoming premiere, Disney has released a set of character posters on social media to get fans hyped up. The live-action remake has seen some controversy over the past few months for various different reasons. With that being said, there are two factors that people are mainly concerned with. Fans are upset that the movie will not contain any of the songs from the animated classic or include Mushu, a fan-favorite character.
Director Niki Caro is going for a more streamlined approach to the Mulan remake. The trailers and promotional material makes it look like a full on war thriller. The character posters highlight the seriousness behind the project. Featured on the posters are Yifei Liu as Mulan, Donnie Yen as Commander Tung, Jason Scott Lee as Bori Khan, Yoson An as Cheng Honghui, Gong Li as Xianniang, and Jet Li as the Emperor.
