In the latest trailer for Disney's live-action remake of the 1998 animated film, Mulan (Liu Yifei) rejects her path of marriage and instead decides to fight in place of her father in the Chinese army by posing as a man.
The action-packed trailer shows the lead up to Mulan's brave decision, her training alongside the men in the army, and warnings of what will happen if her secret is discovered.
"I will bring honor to us all," Mulan promises in the trailer's final moments.
"When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father. 'Mulan' features a celebrated international cast that includes: Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem 'The Ballad of Mulan.'"
The originalvoice of Mulan, actress Ming-Na Wen, praised the live-action remake while speaking with ET in 2017.
"I'm very excited that they want to do a live-action, because they've done so amazingly with all of the movies -- from Maleficent, to Beauty and the Beast, to Cinderella," she said. "I'm really looking forward to the live-action."
As for if she'll make a cameo appearance in the film, Wen remained mum. "I'm not allowed to say," she said. "But fingers crossed."
