Action-Packed 'Mulan' Trailer Introduces New Villain!
The official trailer of Disney's live-action remake of Mulan is now out and it readily gave us what to expect from the mighty warrior and heroine played by actress Yifei Liu.
The almost-two-and-a-half minute clip also gave us a sneak peak on how she trained as a strong warrior to battle the Huns in order to save her father and bring honor to her family, while masquerading as a man, Hua Jun. It also introduced us to one of the film's central villains: a mysterious witch named Xian Lang, portrayed by Gong Li.
The animated classic's soundtrack "Reflection" used back in 1998 was also incorporated in the video as an epic instrumental and made all the OG Mulan fans nostalgic.

Was #Mulan one of my favorite Disney animated movies? No, not at all.— Tara Bowlin (@TaraBowlin) December 6, 2019
Did I cry watching the live action trailer? Yes, like a baby.
I think it might actually be the first live action better than the cartoon!
But @xtina better freaking sing “Reflection” again
The film promises to stay faithful to the famous Chinese legend “Ballad of Mulan," which makes us even more excited to see this film! Watch the newly released official trailer here:
