Hua Mulan is a Chinese story that Disney popularized in the English speaking world when they created the animated movies Mulan and Mulan II. But there were already other movies and TV series about the story prior to Disney’s cartoon adaptation.
This time however, Mulan is back in China and will be told the way it should have been told – from the Chinese perspective and interpretation. Using the latest technologies in movie creation together with veteran actors and actresses like 房祖名 (Jaycee Chan) and 趙薇 (Zhao Wei), Starlight International Media Group, PKU Starlight Group, and Shanghai Film Group Corporation brings back Mulan to the big screen as a Live-Action movie.
Check out the trailers after the break..
We are not sure if this movie will be played in Philippine cinemas but we did see the English subbed trailer (see below) twice in SM Mall of Asia a few weeks ago. I hope we get to see this movie in the big screen locally before the year ends.
With the Metro Manila Film Festival looming (which always begins on December 25th), the Philippines will probably have to wait until 2010 or get it online or wait for pirated copies.
Mulan will premier on the 26th of November 2009 in Singapore and on the 10th of December 2009 in Thailand. While in Hong Kong, it will premier on December 3, 2009, and the rest of China on December 8th.
