The new trailer of the movie remake “Mulan” is enjoying success, receiving reviews and positive comments on all social media, except in Hong Kong, where protesters call for a boycott of the vision of the film that will be released in theaters on March 27th 2020.
Hong Kong citizens oppose the Chinese actress who at the beginning of this year held the Kong Kong police, accused of brutality by protesters.
The film is based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan and is a live action adaptation of Disney’s 1998 animated film of the same name. The film stars Liu Yifei as the eponymous character, alongside Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Gong Li, and Jet Li in supporting roles.
Plans for a live-action Mulan remake began in 2010, however the project never came to fruition. In March 2015, a new attempt was announced and Caro was hired to direct in February 2017. Liu was cast in the title role in November 2017, following a casting call of 1,000 actresses and the rest of the cast joined over the following year. Filming began in August 2018 and lasted through November, taking place in New Zealand and China.
Mulan is scheduled to be theatrically released in the United States on March 27, 2020.
