The film also stars Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Gong Li, and Jet Li.

Now isn't the time for live-action Disney fatigue, since the teaser for 2020's Mulan is here to stir up your excitement once more. Within a few hours of its release, the teaser earned millions of views on YouTube and praise from fans worldwide.

The first look at the film shows no signs of Mulan's best friend and sidekick, Mushu the dragon, or her lucky cricket Cri-Kee. Then, Mulan says, "Yes, I will bring honor to us all". As depicted in the original 1998 animated Disney film, Hua Mulan took the place of her father and brother in the Chinese army.

Deutsche Bank to axe 18,000 jobs
One senior banker, still in a job , questioned how well the slimmed down franchise could compete in future. Teams of share traders in Tokyo and other offices in Asia were told on Monday that their jobs were going.

Despite the fact that Mushu isn't part of the original Chinese story of Hua Mulan, described in the Ballad of Mulan from the 6th century, Mushu is for many an essential and inextricable component of Disney's version of the story people grew up with. The only thing missing is Mushu and his little lucky cricket (whom, sadly, won't be making an appearance). This year alone saw the release of Dumbo, Aladdin and the upcoming The Lion King re-imagined, and up next for Disney is its classic Mulan.

Disney also released a first poster for the film. The clips even give a sneak peek of what Mulan will look like as a man when she trains in the military to keep her sick father from doing so. In just 90 seconds we see our favourite Chinese warrior breaking all those gender stereotypes as she tries to make her family proud in a way they least expect. Mulan (1998) was directed by Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook, with story by Robert D. San Souci and screenplay by Rita Hsiao, Philip LaZebnik, Chris Sanders, Eugenia Bostwick-Singer, and Raymond Singer. Despite her parents wanting her to marry whoever the Matchmaker provides for her, Mulan runs away from home and poses as a man, Hua Jun, in the army.

Mulan will open in the spring of 2020. Instead, Disney created a new love interest for Mulan - Chen Honghui.
