Disney on Thursday released the first official trailer for Mulan, and it’s filled with all the booming instrumentals and colourful scenes you were expecting.
Unlike most of the company’s previous remakes, the new Mulan is not based on its animated predecessor. Rather, the movie draws its inspiration from the original Chinese poem “The Ballad of Mulan”.
This means that the retelling of Mulan doesn’t feature some of the original’s characters or songs, and instead tells an epic story of loyalty and honour. Though this detail upset some fans back in July, the change makes for a more mature and culturally accurate story from Disney.
From what we can gather in the trailer, Mulan is set to take us on an exciting, emotional and action-packed adventure alongside the title character as she masquerades as a man to fight in the Imperial Army.
Disney’s Mulan will air in cinemas next March.
