Mulan: the first trailer of the live-action
Continuing the tradition started for years now with different films, Disney has decided to revive one of his masterpieces, animated, Mulan, and adapted into a new live-action films intended for the big screen: finally, published the first trailer.
A guest at the Denver Pop Culture the voice actress of the heroine in the animated version, Ming-Na Wen (the intrepid agent Melinda May in the ABC series Agents of SHIELD) has talked about how the film, even his plot, he breaks the gender stereotypes.
“I believe that Mulan was the first Disney princess, always if we are to consider as such, break the barriers of gender stereotypes. And’ just a girl from a village who becomes a warrior, quite the opposite of the other Disney princesses, considering that is not a damsel in distress, but, rather, comes to save the male character has the turn and, in doing so, she discovers what it's worth and what he's capable of,” explains the actress, “And has also dressed as a boy...I think this is symbolic for the whole community LGBTQ. I think it is great that there is a princess/warrior Disney can overcome different barriers, proving to be simply different aspects of how a woman of flesh and bone may be”.
So many expectations for this new live-action, which promises to be a real hymn to the emancipation of women, a period that is socially difficult (considering, among other things, the strict abortion laws that are taking effect in the different states of the world). Therefore it is inevitable that the production will be carried out with the utmost care, by providing resources important:as confessed previously by the actress Gong Li (who will play one of the bad guys of the movie) Mulan the film will be Disney's most expensive, with over $ 300 million available for its implementation. Given the events of a narrative of history, the funds allocated are more than justified.
