Super Bowl 'Mulan' trailer: Liu Yifei becomes China's unlikely hero in a new action-packed trailer
Among the many teaser clips that fell into the Super bowl , was a new trailer of 'Mulan' that sheds light on the invading army of assassins led by a powerful witch Xianniang (played by Gong li ) to take over the imperial city. The live action movie trailer sees the emergence of a new hero in Liu Yifei as Hua Mulan , the legendary warrior who takes the place of her elderly father to fight against invading armies.
Equipped with some stunts that defy gravity and explosive action scenes, this trailer offers the supporting cast with Donnie Yen as Commander Tung, Yoson An as fellow soldier (and Mulan 's love interest) Chen Honghui, Tzi Ma as Mulan' s father, and Jet li as the emperor of China, enough time to shine.
Fans of the animated 1998 classic will, however, miss the presence of Mushu, in this flick that will reportedly be based on the original folktale, 'The Ballad of Mulan'.
Helmed by Niki Caro, with the screenplay by Elizabeth Martin, Lauren Hynek, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, and backed by Walt Disney Pictures, 'Mulan' will hit theaters March 27, 2020.
