The movie that defined feminism through most of my childhood, is back with a live-action adaptation! Disney's trailer of Mulan, 21 years after the first, will leave you with goosebumps.
Starring Liu Yifei as Mulan, the film - unlike its predecessor which seemed to rely heavily on comic relief, is a visual treat. As a bonus, Reflections, the hit soundtrack from the single can be faintly heard in the background.
With a twist in the tale, the new version features a witch as the main villain and TBH, we think she looks absolutely badass.
It isn't just us, Twitter can't seem to keep calm about the trailer either.

- looks good
- makes sense
- is actually doing something new
- will be truer to the source material
- seems more respectful of Chinese culture
Y’all: Why aren’t you spoon-feeding me the exact same movie? I like the funny dragon man.
Okay I watched the Mulan trailer, I'm super late, but I need you guys to know that, in the first second they show Gong Li, I just went whole ass gay heart for the character, like screw Mulan I want this fine evil lady to destroy me.— XanzerXIX (@XanzerXIII) December 6, 2019

Hello! #Mulan is an ancient Chinese story about a young woman who not only fought a war and won, she brought honor to her family and completely destroyed gender roles.— Dani Gerch (@daniballada) December 6, 2019
But here y’all are complaining about Mushu not being part of the new trailer. pic.twitter.com/26YFp6rhAT
