Disney's Live Action Mulan Adds Gong Li, Jet Li & Many More to Cast.

April 13, 2018
 
 
Disney's Live-Action film for their classic Chinese movie Mulan is taking shape and getting pretty serious. Disney just revealed that they have officially added Legend Jet Li and actress Gong Li to the movie. It was revealed that Jet Li will portray the emperor of China, who was previously voiced by the late Pat Morita in Disney’s animated Mulan. Gong Li is reported to play Mulan's villain, who will be a mystic or powerful witch. 
 
It makes sense for the two actors to have big roles. I can't see Disney forking over a large sum it may take to grab the two stars and just allowing them to be in the film for a few seconds. 
 
Even though Mulan is set to release in 2020, casting is going strong and has been underway for since late last year. Actress Liu Yifei was also revealed to play Mulan in the retelling. However, up until now, Yifei was the only cast member officially onboard for director Niki Caro’s film. The cast for the film also features Martial Arts master and actor Donnie Yen as a Commander in the Chinese army. The film will also include Chinese-Vietnamese actress Xana Tang and will portray Mulan's sister. 
 
It must be also noted that Mulan may not be going the same route as the original animated film. This is seeing that the original film villain was Shan Yu. Shan Yu who is arguably one of Disney greatest villains is the leader of the Huns and was an imposing man. 
 
Still, I wonder, there is still room for Shan Yu to be added or maybe the Huns will be the threat of a possible sequel.
