Acclaimed filmmaker Niki Caro (McFarland, USA) brings the epic tale of China’s legendary warrior to life in Disney’s Mulan, in which a fearless young woman risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known. 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, Liu Yifei (The Forbidden Kingdom) as the titular hero, Donnie Yen (Ip Man) as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee (The Jungle Book) as Böri Khan; Yoson An (The Meg) as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li (Miami Vice) as Xianniang and Jet Li (The Expendables) as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro (Whale Rider) from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.”
