Stunning trailer for live-action Mulan

Disney has today released the first teaser trailer for the live-action Mulan remake.

Set for release in March next year, the film stars Chinese-American actress Liu Yifei as the titular Mulan in a big-budget remake of the hit 1998 animated film.

The film tells the story of one young girl's rise to embrace her strength and potential when the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country.

Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honoured warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she transforms into an honoured warrior and earns the respect of a grateful nation.

Mulan is just one of a slew of live-action Disney remakes hitting cinemas - next up is the hotly anticipated remake of The Lion King, to be released later this month.
