Mulan

(1998)

Mulan is a brave young woman faced with the terrible reality that her ailing father -- too old to be a soldier but too honorable not to be one -- will be killed in battle. Driven by her love and devotion for her family, Mulan makes a decision that will change their lives forever. Disguising herself as a man, she secretly takes her father's place in the Imperial army that is being gathered to meet the threat of invasion by the villainous Hun leader, Shan-Yu. Accompanied by her feisty, firebreathing "wanna-be" guardian dragon, Mushu, Mulan trains to be a brave and disciplined warrior and ultimately learns some profound lessons about courage, honor and love.

‘Mulan’ Live-Action Movie Planned at Disney

Following the success of Disney's live-action takes on Maleficent and Cinderella, the studio is developing a remake of their 1998 animated hit Mulan. The studio picked up the screenplay by writing team Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek, which centers on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, the female warrior who was at the center of Disney's animated adventure. Chris Bender and J.C. Spink are on board to produce the Mulan live-action remake.

The original Mulan centered on the title character, voiced by Ming-Na Wen, who disguises herself as a man to take her ailing father's place on the battlefield. With the help of her beloved dragon sidekick Mushu (voiced by Eddie Murphy), Mulan becomes a brave warrior who becomes one of her country's most honored heroines. The original Mulan voice cast also included Miguel Ferrer, Harvey Fierstein, June Foray, James Hong, Pat Morita, B.D. Wong and George Takei. Mulan earned over $304 million worldwide during its theatrical release, and spawned the 2004 sequel Mulan II.
