Disney has found it’s Mulan star!

Liu Yifei has been cast as the title character for Disney’s upcoming live action remake, which is still set to debut next year.

According to THR, Liu meets all the requirements that the casting team were after: credible martial arts skills, the ability to speak English and the most ineffable requirement of all: star quality.

She’s actually one of China’s most popular actresses and has a ton of credits to her name like The Forbidden Kingdom, Outcast, The Chinese Widow, and the fantasy romance Once Upon a Time.
