Disney finds director for live-action Mulan movie

February 16th, 2017 by bash Comments

It looks like Disney has found a director for its live-action take on Mulan.

According to THR, McFarland, USA director Niki Caro will be taking on the project. The animated Mulan, released by Disney in 1998, adapted the ancient Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, a female warrior who disguises herself as a man in order to take the place of her aging father in the military.

Caro was previously linked to Marvel’s Captain Marvel but that her schedule on Mulan will likely scupper that idea. Lauren Hynek and Elizabeth Martin provided the initial screenplay for the latter, which has since been rewritten by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
