With the world at odds over the pigment of a completely fictional species and character, spawning a divisive hashtag and meme wars, Disney had the right answer. A Diversion.
It’s not like Disney hasn’t been inappropriately casting voice actors to play ethnic roles for decades, they just decided to right the ship. So how do you get back on course from #NotMyAriel sweeping the world off its internet feet? DROP THAT MULAN TRAILER NOW!
WOW! This looks amazing! Hua Mulan’s story is passed down through legend similar to a King Arthur, but some say that the “Legend” is based from a true story. You can travel down that rabbit hole later if you want.
That being said the societal norms of women of china at the time are the very thing that women today are striving to break. So pushing an agenda is the furthest thing form THIS writer’s mind when watching the message all girls should see.
Mulan’s titular character is played by Yifei Liu, who has appeared in movies with the legendary Jackie Chan, and is accompanied by some legendary Chinese action legends, Donnie Yen, Jet Li, and Li Gong. By the looks of this trailer we’re going to get a heart felt action packed film.
Mulan’s release is set for Spring of 2020.
