Mulan, Like Apparently All Classic Disney Movies, is Becoming a Live Action Film

Posted By on Mon, Mar 30, 2015 at 4:00 PM


It's happening again, movie lovers: the beloved, gender-bending animated flick "Mulan" is being turned into a live action film. 

From Entertainment Weekly:

Disney has purchased a script from writing duo Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek with Chris Bender and J.C. Spink attached to produce.

No release date or casting has been announced for the in-development project, but it can be added to the growing list of live-action takes on Disney’s vast catalog of beloved animated films. Cinderella recently debuted No. 1 at the box office and has so far earned over $330 million worldwide.

Disney also has a live-action Beauty and the Beast in the works, starring Emma Watson, coming in 2017, while another Alice in Wonderland is set for 2016. A new The Jungle Book is also planned for 2016, and a live-action Dumbo with Tim Burton directing is said to be in the works.
Don't for get to add (semi)recent character revivals Sleeping Beauty (in "Maleficent") and every character from "Into the Woods" to the list of five (five!!!) films EW listed in that blurb. It's 1995 all over again. 

Also, "Dumbo" is happening? That'll be interesting.
