LOOK: LEA SALONGA, NADINE LUSTRE React To Song-Free "Mulan" Remake!
Some fans were disappointed when the director of the upcoming live-action Mulan announced the decision to have a song-free remake during an interview with Moviefone. After all, the animated version was loved by many because of its music.
Among them was Nadine Lustre who tweeted a GIF of a scene from the 1998 Disney film. It features the characters Mushu and Cri-Kee in a conversation about "dishonor"!

Surprisingly, Lea Salonga - who served as the singing voice of Fa Mulan in the animated classic - tweeted her support. The Disney Legend thinks the original Mulan saga has withstood the test of time "without the music"!
The original legend of Mulan existed for over 1,000 years without the music. The new film will stand proud and tall without the songs.— Lea Salonga (@MsLeaSalonga) March 20, 2017
I ask for two things from the live-action Mulan: one, an Asian actress that'd be believable as a boy or a man, and a hunky Shang.— Lea Salonga (@MsLeaSalonga) March 20, 2017
Seems everyone has different takes on Disney's decision. Either way, we're looking foward to it!
