The animated classic is well known, while the live action remake has faced controversy over the last several years, including whether to make this version a musical or not. The trailer teases a promise as instrumentation of “Reflection” from the original film, that she is Hua Mulan, and she will bring honor to them all.
Mulan herself is played by Yifei Li, and other stars of the film include Jason Scott Lee (Khan), Jet Li (The Emperor), and Li Gong (Xian).
