Disney to remake Mulan as live-action blockbuster

Disney are producing a new live-action adaptation of their animated classic Mulan. 

The studio have purchased a script from writers Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek, who have penned a new story based on the Chinese legend that inspired their original 1998 movie. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Disney have placed Chris Bender and JC Spink, who most recently produced the hit comedy We're The Millers, in charge of stewarding the remake. 

Mulan tells the story of a young woman, who is forced to disguise herself and join the Chinse army to save her weakened and lame father from certain death. After struggling, she then goes on to become one of China's greatest heroines. 

Mulan is the latest in a string of live-action retellings of Disney's classics, they have already released new adaptations of Alice In Wonderland, Maleficent and, most recently, Cinderella. New adaptations of Beauty And The Beast, Dumbo and The Jungle Book are currently in production.
