Same story, new twist

The storytelling in the live-action version of the film is expected to be slightly different than the animated one as a woman director, Niki Caro, will be projecting this story of the Chinese hero on the big screen. The story of Mulan begins 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, Mulan is tested every step of the way as she harnesses her inner-strength and embraces her true potential. The epic journey then transforms her into an honored warrior and she earns the respect of a grateful nation and a proud father.
