Mulan has yet to hit theaters, but the studio feels they have something special on their hands and are gearing up to tell another story following the young female warrior.
According to industry insider Daniel Richtman, a sequel to Mulan is in very development, which is something we here at The DisInsider can also confirm is true. Producers Chris Bender, Jason Reed, and Jake Weiner will return to produce the sequel.
As of now, there are no writers attached to the project, and it is unknown if Niki Caro would return to direct. The film will not draw inspiration from Disney’s Mulan 2, which was a straight to VHS release. Instead, the film will be an original story. It should be noted, that the sequels chances of happening all rides on how well Mulan does at both the domestic and international box office, with all eyes being on China.
Mulan was originally set for a March 27, 2020 release, the film had its worldwide premiere, and gained positive word-of-mouth, but sadly, due to the coronavirus outbreak Disney was forced to remove the film off the release schedule and was later given a new release date of July 24, 2020.
