But there already is a sequel.

Is it even going to be a musical?

Well I just answered my own question, they've cut out the music, and Mushu. This is basically geared toward keeping the Chinese market happy and pulling the American audience along for the ride. Don't have a problem with it as long as the movie is good.

I didn't realize Mulan was based on a real Chinese legend.

Would be more interested if Mulan was white with red hair.

Ypu dont think a movie about a transgender appropriating a Male role in the military and then making the men look like fools, ultimately causing the real hero to question his sexuality interesting enough?
but it would even be even better (TM) if she were a whole other ethnicity as well.

The Asian audience hated the animated musical movie from 20 years ago. Disney is finally making it up to them with this live-action movie now.

seems shortsighted given that Disney only gets 25% of Chinese box office.

So if the movie makes $300 million there, Disney only takes $75 million home.

If this is not a musical that can also appeal to kids, it is likely to take a bigger hit in the West than $75 MM,. But whatever. Disney's call. This one does not appeal to me in any way any more, so I am out.

Never seen the original, and have no interest in this. Was the original good?

not really. it was part of the downfall of animation after the second renaissance.
it can be reasonably assumed this is being done for the Chinese market first, everyone second, as there was never a clamor from most people for a live action of this one.

Being successful in the box office or not, Disney's approach to their Asian audience is giving them an authentic movie that would appeal to them and getting them to visit one of their three theme park resorts located in the Asia continent (Tokyo Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Shanghai Disneyland).

I actually enjoyed the original, not a classic but an interesting story. This is one of their remakes that I think has a chance to actually do some interesting things in live action.

I haven't seen Mulan since it came out in the theater, so it'll be cool to watch it with pretty fresh eyes, almost as a new movie.

Your animation history is a bit off.

The Disney Renaissance started with Beauty and the Beast and ran through Tarzan, though the second half of that era is widely seen as not as good as the first half.

And you're wrong as well. The Disney Renaissance started with The Little Mermaid in 1989, not Beauty and the Beast.

You are absolutely correct, I actually knew the year and had the order of those two flipped in my head. Good catch.

The original doesn't have the 'iconic' status of the more recent remakes, so hopefully it will be easier to surpass expectations. The visuals look amazing for this one. Disney ninja movie? Yes please.

Good point. They are brand building.

This looks AMAZING!!! I'm all in on this one. Looks like there will be some pretty good fight sequences.

I'm actually pretty surprised how much I'm looking forward to this one. This needs to have a more serious tone to be done well...i.e. NO EDDIE MURPHY / MUSHU

If they make this a serious martial arts movie it will be a hell of a lot of fun to watch!

This will only last for one day, but right now Disney has the 5 highest grossing theatrical releases of 2019. Just incredible.

On Monday Spider-Man FFH will pass Aladdin, to get Sony into the top 5.

https://www.the-numbers.com/market/2019/summary

Disney also has 38% of the 2019 theatrical revenue with only 10 movies playing this year.

Frozen 2 and Rise of Skywalker both have a shot at retaking that fifth spot...

Btw, is this the thread to talk Disney+ or no? If not, should we start one? Should would start a "streaming platform" thread in general?
