Disney finds its Mulan for live-action adaptation

Disney's Live-Action 'Mulan' Casts Liu Yifei As The Lead, So Here's Everything To Know About The Chinese Actor

According to Hollywood Reporter, a team of casting directors visited five continents and interviewed almost 1,000 candidates for the role which required an odd mix of features.

However, according to a article, the response to Disney's choice has been somewhat mixed in China with netizens criticizing Liu for being a boring, bad actor that has been in too many box office flops. Yifei, who is known in China as the "Fairy Sister" for her image, has acted in mostly Chinese productions but appeared in American-Chinese movies like 2014's Outcast with Nicholas Cage and The Forbidden Kingdom in 2008.

Though Mulan is just one of many Disney Animation favorites set to incur a live-action adaptation, the transfer of its story into a new medium feels a bit more delicate than that of its brethren.

The 30-year-old (who also goes by the name Crystal Liu) hails from the Wuhan, Hubei, province of China, but is fluent in English from time spent living in Queens, NY, during part of her childhood. Liu also now serves as brand ambassador for Dior, Tissot, Garnier, and Pantene.

Waymo is now asking for further information from Uber and an investigation into the contents of Jacobs's letter, Gizmodo reports. Part of that settlement can be withheld if Jacobs violates a provision requiring him not to say anything that would harm Uber.

Disney has at last cast the actress who will star in the highly-anticipated live-action remake of Mulan. The English-language version of the original "Mulan" (1998) featured the voices of Ming-Na Wen, Eddie Murphy, Miguel Ferrer, and BD Wong, while Jackie Chan provided his voice for Chinese dubs of the movie. The upcoming live-action adaptation of Mulan has finally found its Mulan! There's been some concern about what the casting make-up of the live-action Mulan might look like, but putting Liu in the main role should allay some of those fears.
