The much-awaited live-action movie Mulan that created ripples across the globe, comes to India this December.
Acclaimed filmmaker Niki Caro brings the epic tale of China’s legendary warrior to life; in which a fearless young woman risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors in China has ever known.
When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential.
It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father. Mulan features a celebrated international cast Yifei Liu (Mulan), Donnie Yen (Commander Tung); Tzi Ma (Zhou), Jason Scott Lee (Böri Khan), Yoson An (Honghui), Ron Yuan (Sergeant Qiang) with Gong Li (Xianniang) and Jet Li (Emperor).
Filmmaker and Director Niki Caro shares, “What drew me to this story was Mulan herself. Her journey from village girl to male soldier to warrior and hero is a story that’s as relevant and as resonant as it was when it was first written centuries ago.”
She further added, “I think Mulan as a character means so much to fans because of her essential nature. She’s a dutiful daughter and a loving and courageous human being—but she’s also vulnerable and fallible. And as a female character, she’s not a superhero. She’s human.”
Come 4th December 2020, Mulan will be available to all existing subscribers at no extra cost in English on Disney+ Hotstar Premium and dubbed in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu on Disney+ Hotstar VIP; giving families across the country another wholesome blockbuster movie to enjoy.
