Now let’s get official with the synopsis – you know in case you forgot:
The eldest daughter of an honored warrior, Hua Mulan is spirited, determined and quick on her feet. When the Emperor issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army, she steps in to take the place of her ailing father as Hua Jun, becoming one of China’s greatest warriors ever.
Mulan, the latest in Disney’s live-action adaptation, is slated to hit theaters March 2020!
