Mulan, the highly anticipated live-action version, will be coming to a theater near you on March 27th, 2020! You must mark your calendars now!
Our family’s favorite Disney princess is Mulan. So of course we were ecstatic when we heard they were doing a live-action version.
The legend of Hua Mulan has been around for centuries. According to Chinese folklore, Hua Mulan lived in the 6th century in the Northern Wei part of China. From what I have gathered during my research, that part of current day China would have placed her living in the Henan Province; which is the Central part China.
INTERESTING FACT: Did you know that in Chinese “Huā” means “flower” and “Mùlán” means magnolia?
I am really looking forward to this new live-action take on Mulan. I have read that there will be several things that will be different compared to the original animated version; however, this version though will be closer to the true folklore.
