A young, fearless heroine will conquer the big screen with her temperament and breathtaking martial arts. MULAN is THE action-packed and emotional film highlight of the upcoming movie premiere – a visually stunning epic cinema adventure about a modern as well as traditional title heroine, who plunges into a risky and seemingly impossible adventure out of love for her family and her homeland. The new trailer we show you directly under this text. When China's powerful emperor issues a decree that one man from each family be drafted into the imperial army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Mulan Hua, the daughter and only child of a highly decorated soldier, decides instead of her sick and weakened father's convocation order. Mulan pretends to be Jun Hua in man's disguise and has to undergo rigorous testing. With the many adventures she experiences on her epic journey, she learns to trust in her inner strength, discovering her true potential. Thus, at the end of her exciting journey to becoming a respected warrior, Mulan can not only be sure of the gratitude of the entire nation, she will also earn the respect of her proud father.
Director Niki Caro has already demonstrated her incredible talent for staging independent heroines and the liveliness of legends rich in tradition with her highly acclaimed drama about a young Maori girl in "Whale Rider". She is the best cast on the director's chair for the modern reinterpretation of the tense adventure. Yifei Liu, China's new star in the cinema's sky and an impressive vocal talent, embodies the unique heroine who demonstrates great courage and inner strength.
In front of the camera MULAN unites a considerable number of international top stars: Yifei Liu ("Forbidden Kingdoms", "Once Upon A Time") embodies the title hero Mulan. Martial Arts Legend Donnie Yen ("Rogue One: A Star Wars Story") is seen as Commander Tung. American actor Jason Scott Lee ("Rapa Nui – Rebellion in Paradise") plays Böri Khan. The New Zealand shooting star Yoson An ("Mortal Engines") embodies Cheng Honghui.
