Yoson will play opposite Liu Yifei (known as Crystal Liu), who is playing Hua Mulan.

Yoson will play Mulan’s most important ally, and eventual love interest. (This character will differ from Li Shang, the Chinese army captain who was the main love interest in the animated film.)

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.

Donnie will portray Mulan’s mentor, Commander Tung, while Xana will star as an original character, Mulan’s sister.

Disney’s upcoming live action movie for Mulan has been pushed back to 2020, Variety reports.

The flick, which will star Chinese actress Liu Yifei in the title role, was originally slated for Nov. 2, 2018. Now, the flick will premiere on March 27, 2020.

As previously reported, the entire movie will feature an all-Chinese cast.

“The spec script was a jumping-off point for a new take on the story that draws from both the literary ballad of Mulan and Disney’s 1998 animated film,” a source shared.

“Mulan is and will always be the lead character in the story, and all primary roles, including the love interest, are Chinese.”

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.
