The wait for the “Mulan” live-action film just became much longer.
Initially planned for a November 2018 release, the Disney film will now arrive in theaters on March 27, 2020, according to Variety. The live-action is a remake of the beloved animated original that came out in 1998.
Directed by Niki Caro and starring Chinese actress Liu Yifei in the titular role, “Mulan” tells the story of a young woman who, dressed like a man, takes her father’s place on the front lines of war.
Liu’s casting came in November last year following a long search that reportedly spanned 1,000 candidates across five continents.
Caro, a filmmaker from New Zealand, is best known for the critically acclaimed family drama “Whale Rider.”
The 1998 “Mulan,” voiced by Ming-Na Wen, Eddie Murphy and B.D. Wong, earned $304 million worldwide and earned Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations.
