In an exclusive report by Hollywood Reporter, Crystal Liu was announced as the titular lead for the upcoming Disney live-action adaptation of Mulan. Being a fan of the 1998 animated film and the very recent live-action Beauty and the Beast, I’m so happy that they can finally get the ball rolling now that Disney has found its leading lady. It will be directed by Niko Caro and scheduled for a 2019 release. 

I really thought they would go with an unknown, but going with a household name like Crystal Liu is a pretty smart bet as international viewers would have already seen her in movies like the 2008 action blockbuster The Forbidden Kingdom opposite Jackie Chan and Jet Li. She’s also no stranger to costume dramas as she has landed many, many iconic roles over the years as Little Dragon Girl, Bai Qian and Nie Xiao Qian to name a few.  What do you think of her as Mulan?
