Mulan Is Disney's Next Live-Action Film

Disney seems to be chugging along with a plan to remake its animated films into live-action versions — so much so that SNL geniusly parodied a live-action Bambi over the weekend. This news, however, is no joke. The next Disney film to get the live-action treatment is Mulan, it was announced this week. The animated Mulan came out in 1998 and features the voice of Ming-Na Wen as the heroine. The success of last month's Cinderella is obviously encouraging this development, and of course, Beauty and the Beast is also in the works.
