And just like that, five months passed by in the blink of an eye. Incredibly grateful, honored, and humbled to officially picture wrap filming for Mulan. This was one of the most intense journeys of my life, filled with a lot of personal growth and self discovery that I never expected. Thank you to everyone on the cast and crew that was a part of my life this past half year. You all made a huge impact on me and I am so grateful to have gotten to know you. I remember hearing actors talk about how their cast and crew became “family” after a production, but I never really understood it. I do now. The connection we all forged on this movie was something special: because of the shared story we’re telling, the magnitude of the representation of our heritage, and a core of diverse and represented cast and crew, helmed by our amazing director who has been boldly breaking new ground since day 1. I know there is a lot of doubt and misgivings spiralling around the internet about the movie, but to that, all I can say is- don’t knock it til you’ve tried it. I have a gut feeling that this movie is beyond something special. I can’t wait to see it for the first time myself. Hope you’ll join me on this journey. 💙 Since I can only tag 20 ppl above, here are some of the rest of the incredible crew that made this journey complete. It takes a tribe to make a film in New Zealand 🙂 @nikicaro Director @celluloidgypsy 1st AD @mandywalkerdp DP @bina1004 Costume Designer @laurendodman Costumer @sunshineyuen Costumer @fieldwheels Onset 2nd AD @chantelleburgoyne Script & Cast Coordinator @hckash Dialect Coach @shepples Dialect Coach @iauhnaush Assistant @heavilymeditated777 Assistant @fiorafiorafiora Assistant @callmeadreamer8 Assistant @frangipaniflowers Assistant @puffblockripoff Driver @_missmara_ Makeup & Hair @tresmangos Dolly Grip @davidstrongnz Military Advisor @chenxi1096 Fight Trainer @eva_y_yang Stunts @_liuyaxi Stunt Double @wangxian5974 My Stunt Double! @ritachenhu Team Driver @melchanstagram Accounts And mad love to the hundreds of background talent who worked longer and harder hours than all of us in the south island to bring our biggest sequences to life.

Mulan is the epic adventure of a fearless young woman who masquerades as a man in order to fight Northern Invaders attacking China. The eldest daughter of an honored warrior, Hua Mulan is spirited, determined and quick on her feet. When the Emperor issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army, she steps in to take the place of her ailing father as Hua Jun, becoming one of China’s greatest warriors ever.
Directed by Niki Caro (The Zookeepers Wife) the film also stars Donnie Yen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story); Jason Scott Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny); Yoson An (The Meg); Utkarsh Ambudkar (Pitch Perfect); Ron Yuan (Marco Polo); Tzi Ma (Arrival); Rosalind Chao (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine); Cheng Pei-Pei (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon); Nelson Lee; Chum Ehelepola; with Gong Li (Memoirs of a Geisha, Raise the Red Lantern) and Jet Li (Shaolin Temple, Lethal Weapon 4).
Back in September we shared Mulan’s fire breathing sidekick Mushu would appear in the film, as well as feature some music from the 1998 animated film.
Disney’s live-action remakes have grossed over $4.5 billion at the worldwide box so far, and will look to continue that success with Mulan, and remakes of Dumbo, Aladdin, The Lion King, Sword In The Stone, Lady In The Tramp, Peter Pan, And The Little Mermaid all in active production and/or development.
Disney’s Mulan will hit theaters on March 27, 2020.
