Additionally, Chum Ehelepola has been cast in the role of Ramtish, who, along with Utkarsh Ambudkar‘s Skatch, will play the con-artist duo in the movie.

Mulan is set to be released in March 27, 2020, and will begin shooting in August in China and New Zealand.

Don’t expect to see Li Sheng in the new Mulan!

The beloved Chinese army captain, and eventually Mulan’s love interest in the original film, will apparently not appear in the new live-action Disney film, which is due out in theaters on March 27, 2020.

Mulan’s new flame is a character named Chen Jonghui according to a casting call. He was not featured in the previous movie. This new character will allegedly be an army recruit who is bent on being the “best soldier in human history.”

“After learning that his rival is a woman, his intense feelings of rivalry turn into something very different, something like love,” the description reads.

Fans have expressed their disapproval of Li Shang’s removal, especially because he’s theorized to be a queer character because of his strong connection to Mulan’s male alter-ego, Ping. Some also feel that the new character’s description intentionally removes the possibility that he could be bisexual.

Donnie Yen was recently added to the new movie’s cast.
