Liu Yifei will star as ‘Mulan’ in Disney’s upcoming live-action film
Fans went straight to the internet to voice out their excitement about the news and celebrated Disney for staying true to the Chinese culture and history.
She's everything Disney is looking for in someone who'll portray Mulan. The movie was about a young girl who joins the army as a boy in disguise after learning that her weak father has to join the army. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the casting directors travelled to five continents in search for the ideal candidate who is ethnically Chinese and equipped with martial arts skills, the ability to speak English, and of course, star quality.
According to CNN, Disney has cast Liu Yifei as the title character in the upcoming live action remake of MULAN.

Fans were eagerly waiting to find out who would be playing the main role in Disney's live remake of the 1998 animated movie Mulan and were thrilled to find out Ms Yifei would be playing Chinese heroine Hua Mulan.
After a yearlong worldwide search, the 30-year-old Chinese actress - who is also known as Crystal Liu - has been cast to play the lead in the new adaptation helmed by Niki Caro, The Hollywood Reporter claims.
One recent example is this year's science-fiction film "Ghost in the Shell", which saw actress Scarlett Johansson in the role of a Japanese character, which drew heavy criticism and demands to boycott the production. Besides being fluent in English having spent some years living in NY, the 30-year-old is also one of the most successful actresses of this generation. She also worked alongside Jackie Chan and Jet Li in the 2008 fantasy action film "The Forbidden Kingdom". You may have heard about 2017's "The Chinese Widow", in which she starred alongside Emile Hirsch. Mulan is slated to be released in 2019.
