Today, Disney gave us a sneak peek for the upcoming Mulan trailer, ready to conquer the Superbowl trailer game. The giant film set for release this spring is promising a whole lot of action that will keep people talking for years. Or at least that’s what it seems.
The 30 second peek at the trailer gives us the lines we’re pretty familiar with, especially where she promises to “bring honor to (us) all”. What’s new is the intense action. We saw a bit in the first trailer but they’re truly going to turn it up to eleven in the film. We see Mulan taking incredible leaps, dodging arrows, kicking away spears and chopping down weapons with ease. She’s almost a superhero in this film! It also teases an intense face off between Mulan and the witch that I can’t wait to see.

What I love the most about this movie already is the wuxia inspiration. Wuxia, meaning “martial heroes”, is a type of fictional fantasy where ancient Chinese persons were able to do incredible feats such as flying, running up walls, and inhuman skills in martial arts. They really love flying and running up walls. Think House of Flying Daggers, Hero, or Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. It’s a genre I have a real affection for and I would love to see it incorporated into this movie.
Mulan is directed by Niki Caro with the script written by Lauren Hynek, Rick Jaffa, Elizabeth Martin, and Amanda Silver. Produced by Chris Bender, William Kong, Barrie M. Osborne, Jason Reed, and Jake Weiner. The film stars Liu Yifei, Yoson An, Donnie Yen, Jason Lee Scott, Ron Yuan, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Xana Tang, Chum Ehelepola and Gong Li with Jet Li.
