While Disney has provided us with plenty of live-action films these past few years, Mulan is one that will most certainly stand out from the rest of the crowd. That’s because it’s gearing up to be one epic, big-budget martial arts movie that will certainly captivate audiences. And luckily, we’ve got your first look in a teaser trailer right here!
In the film, Mulan is a heroine for the ages. Worries that her sick father will be drafted into the Chinese military, Mulan takes matters into her own hands by taking his spot. Yet, as a girl that is living under a patriarchal regime, she can’t technically serve. That’s when she decides to impersonate a man and goes off to train with her fellow recruits. She also falls in love with a dashing captain along the way.
The tagline reads as, “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.”
