Niki Caro‘s Mulan is another live-action digital remake of another Disney animated hit (i.e., 1998’s Mulan). Right away I can sense the carefully poised, vaguely antiseptic, myth-making ethos. We know this will be another link of Disney sausage, and yet I adored Caro’s Whale Rider and greatly admired McFarland USA. Set in China during the Han dynasty, it’s about a young Chinese maiden (Liu Yifei) who disguises herself as a male warrior in order to save her father during a Hun invasion. Also starring Jet Li, Donnie Yen, Yoson An, Gong Li, Jason Scott Lee. Is this a Hollywood Elsewhere film? Of course not.
