The new Mulan trailer has dropped and I, for one, am hype. A culturally adept film with an all Asian cast about a Chinese badass warrior woman? Sign me the heck up.
Unfortunately, not everyone feels the same way.
In the comments of the new trailer, on YouTube and Facebook, most people voiced lukewarm feelings or outright distaste for the film’s changes. After all, unlike most of the Disney remakes, the movie plans to change quite a bit. Mulan will be more culturally accurate, will not be a musical, and will not have the talking animal characters it once had. People seem to be really up in arms about no “Girl Worth Fighting For” or Mushu.
Recently, there has also been a big internet hullabaloo about Disney executives picking a black actor to play Ariel. There is a fair amount of speculation if a lot of that uproar was manufactured for free press. Either way, there is a big controversy around the upcoming The Little Mermaid film now instead of excited buzz.
Fans of Rick and Morty have been aching for news of the show’s third season since Mister Poopy Butthole told us at the end of season two that we’d have to wait about a year and a half before we saw another episode. In the time since, there have been all kinds of rumours flying around, convincing people that it was coming on whatever date, only for that date to come and go with no sign of Rick’s inevitable escape from prison. The creators had no end of fun teasing fans with mysterious tweets and other such cruelly tantalising slips. (more…)
In a move that has successfully blended the nostalgic with the contemporary, Disney has been drawing consistently positive crowds to their latest wave of live action remakes of classic movies. Technically starting back in 2010 with Tim Burton’s reimagining of Alice in Wonderland, subsequent remakes have only proved more and more popular with each release, with The Jungle Book smashing expectations and the upcoming Beauty and the Beast eagerly anticipated all around the world. Next year, Disney is planning on releasing a live action version of Mulan, a full twenty years after the animated original. (more…)
With Disney’s new “in thing” being rebooting their famous animated films into live action feature films, they are (re) rolling out the hits. After the success of The Jungle Book and next on their plate is Beauty and The Beast next year. In has recently been announced that Disney’s next live-action remake will be Mulan.Mulan was based on the legend of Hua Mulan as she impersonated a man to take her father’s place during war. Disney has already set a release date of November 2, 2018, for the new version of the film. It looks like the film is already in some trouble when it comes to casting. (more…)
Somewhere between The Lion King and Chicken Little, Disney Animation decided it was going to get more multicultural. There was Pocahontas which featured Native Americans, The Hunchback of Notre Dame where the love interest was Romani, and there was Mulan which was an adaptation of a Chinese legend. Which one of these things is about to get a live-action remake? Well, if you read the headline for this article, then you know it’s Mulan, and Disney is putting it on the fast track to join its ever growing menagerie of live-action remakes of classic Disney films.

Despite coming to Fan Expo almost directly from the set of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. the day before, Ming-Na Wen was still every bit the exact opposite of her S.H.I.E.L.D. character, super agent Melinda May: bright, funny, and talkative. For eager fans, they had three main areas of concentration in terms of the questions: S.H.I.E.L.D. (obviously), Disney’s Mulan, and Wen being an example of a successful and accomplished female Asian actress in the field where there’s not much competition to being those three things. (more…)
Hot on the heels of the recent success of Disney‘s live action Cinderella at the box office, Disney has announced that Mulan will be their next animated character brought to life on the big screen as a live action version. (more…)
Wanna clap your hands like a ‘tard? Well..you’re free to do that anytime, but here’s a clip that will give you just cause.
X-Men: First Class cut to that “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” song from Mulan (Disney). There are no words to describe this perfection. I legit started hyperventilating as soon as the music started. I flailed through it’s entirety.
Maybe I’m over selling it, but every fandom needs a good “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You” fanvid and this is probably the best you’re gonna get.
Internet has been kind for folks that has artistic skills and ideas for being the place to have them show their creation off while all I have to show was my old manga scanlations done on MS Paint. Juan Pablo Bravo, who did this awesome Pixar Character Size Chart, stepped his game up and jumped from two hundred characters to two hundred and fifty. He has them listed in order from the film’s release date and although it’s an estimation of their height, I say its pretty exact. Check the massive the picture out as it may listed an old movie you may have forgotten. Also, stop by Bravo’s page to look up some other things he has done.
