The world at large has recently gotten live action renditions of a number of Disney classics with “Aladdin” already in theaters and “The Lion King” opening up in the coming days. On that note, the news about casting for a live action “The Little Mermaid” is circulating so finding out that “Mulan” was doing the same thing I wasn’t really surprised. The first teaser look at the film was just recently released so let’s take a look at it along with the premise, casting and the first teaser poster as well.

The Plot: When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders attacking China, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. She is spirited, determined and quick on her feet. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into not only an honored warrior, but one of China’s greatest warriors ever and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: While this looks to be beautifully shot and to feature an incredible story I never managed to see the original animation so have little background on the source material. Truth be told, I don’t generally get to see the Disney films in the theaters and instead end up waiting until they hit the pay channels that I subscribe to. What about you readers? Does anything about this trailer interest you in the film? You have plenty of time to decide about it but feel free to share your initial thoughts. See you next time.
